libvorbis quantvals and quantlist buffer overflow

libvorbis-quantvals-quantlist-bo (42403) The risk level is classified as HighHigh Risk

Description:

libvorbis is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by an integer overflow during the computation of "quantvals" and "quantlist". By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted OGG file, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
