Description Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-04-14 20:01:33 UTC
xiph's (lib)speex 1.2 beta 3.2 has been tagged that fixes CVE-2008-1686 directly in the the speex_header_to_packet() function which applications use. Sanitations inside applications are therefore unnecessary.

Comment 1 Samuli Suominen gentoo-dev 2008-04-15 09:35:05 UTC
And we have it in Portage now,

*speex-1.2_beta3_p2 (15 Apr 2008)
