Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in SoX (Sound eXchange),
a sound processing program:

CVE-2017-11332

The startread function (wav.c) is affected by a divide-by-zero

to perform denial of service (application crash).

The read_samples function (hcom.c) is affected by an invalid memory read
vulnerability when processing HCOM files with invalid dictionnaries. This
flaw might be leveraged by remote attackers using a crafted HCOM file to

CVE-2017-11359

The wavwritehdr function (wav.c) is affected by a divide-by-zero
vulnerability when processing WAV files with invalid channel count over
16 bits. This flaw might be leveraged by remote attackers using a crafted
WAV file to perform denial of service (application crash).

CVE-2017-15371

The sox_append_comment() function (formats.c) is vulnerable to a reachable
assertion when processing FLAC files with metadata declaring more comments
than provided. This flaw might be leveraged by remote attackers using
crafted FLAC data to perform denial of service (application crash).

For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your sox packages.
