Several local (remote) vulnerabilities have been discovered in libvorbis,
a library for the Vorbis general-purpose compressed audio codec. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
libvorbis does not properly handle a zero value which allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (crash or infinite loop) or
trigger an integer overflow.
Integer overflow in libvorbis allows remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code via a crafted OGG file, which triggers a heap overflow.
