vorbis-tools oggenc vulnerability
Author : qflb.wu

The Vorbis Tools package contains command-line tools useful for encoding, playing or editing files using the Ogg CODEC.

Affected version:

Vulnerability Description:
the wav_open function in oggenc/audio.c in vorbis-tools 1.4.0 can cause a denial of service(memory allocation error) 
via a crafted wav file.

./oggenc vorbis-tools_1.4.0_oggenc_memory_allocation_error.wav -o out

wav->channel_permute = malloc(wav->channels * sizeof(int));
if (wav->channels <= 8)
   /* Where we know the mappings, use them. */
   memcpy(wav->channel_permute, wav_permute_matrix[wav->channels-1], 
           sizeof(int) * wav->channels);
   /* Use a default 1-1 mapping */
   for (i=0; i < wav->channels; i++)
       wav->channel_permute[i] = i;

return 1;

Andthe code didn't check the return of malloc.

This is supposedly fixed by bug 537422 already.
Comment 2 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2018-09-14 18:10:26 UTC
sound done here as well.
Comment 3 Aaron Bauman Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2018-11-24 23:00:38 UTC
tree is clean.
