All supported architectures
A buffer overflow vulnerability in libsamplerate might lead to the
execution of arbitrary code.
Secret Rabbit Code (aka libsamplerate) is a Sample Rate Converter for
Russell O'Connor reported a buffer overflow in src/src_sinc.c related
to low conversion ratios.
A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to process a
specially crafted audio file possibly leading to the execution of
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libsamplerate users should upgrade to the latest version:
