USN-465-1: PulseAudio vulnerability

25 May 2007

PulseAudio vulnerability



Luigi Auriemma discovered multiple flaws in pulseaudio's network
processing code. If an unauthenticated attacker sent specially crafted
requests to the pulseaudio daemon, it would crash, resulting in a denial
of service.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 7.04
  • pulseaudio - 0.9.5-5ubuntu4.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
