libsndfile -- PAF file processing integer overflow
Hossein Lotfi has discovered a vulnerability in libsndfile,
which can be exploited by malicious people to potentially
compromise an application using the library. The vulnerability
is caused due to an integer overflow error in the "paf24_init()"
function (src/paf.c) when processing Paris Audio (PAF) files.
This can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via
a specially crafted file. Successful exploitation may allow
execution of arbitrary code. The vulnerability is confirmed in
version 1.0.24. Other versions may also be affected.
