SoX contains a flaw that may allow a malicious user to execute arbitrary code on a remote system. The issue is triggered when a user executes a specially crafted .wav file created by a malicious user which will overflow a buffer in the st_wavstartread() function of wav.c. It is possible that the flaw may allow remote code execution on the local system resulting in a loss of confidentiality and integrity.
