OpenMPT ReadSample() buffer overflow

openmpt-readsample-bo (28309) The risk level is classified as HighHigh Risk

Description:

OpenMPT is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the CSoundFile::ReadSample() function in soundlib/Sndfile.cpp. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted ITP file, or module, an attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system that is using the affected library.
