Multiple Vulnerabilities in .FLAC File Format and Various Media Applications

eEye Digital Security has discovered 14 vulnerabilities in the processing of FLAC (Free-Lossless Audio Codec) files affecting various applications. Processing a malicious FLAC file within a vulnerable application could result in the execution of arbitrary code at the privileges of the application or the current user (depending on OS). [...] The vulnerabilities in the .FLAC format are due to improperly handling metadata values from malformed files.


Vendor Status:
libFLAC version 1.2.1 was released in September, 2007, fixing these vulnerabilities for most vulnerable applications. [...]
