Fedora Update Notification
2018-08-14 20:15:54.627005

Name : sox
Product : Fedora 27
Version :
Release : 22.fc27
Summary : A general purpose sound file conversion tool
Description :
SoX (Sound eXchange) is a sound file format converter. SoX can convert
between many different digitized sound formats and perform simple
sound manipulation functions, including sound effects.

Update Information:

Fixes **CVE-2017-11332**, **CVE-2017-11358**, and **CVE-2017-11359**. —-
**Prevents division by zero in `src/ao.c`** This bug is hard to reproduce,
depending on the HW configuration or installed OS parts. For me, it can be
reproduced only in `mock`. In this update, error message should be displayed
instead of SIGFPE.

* Wed Jun 6 2018 Jiri Kucera <> –
– added patch that fixes:
+ “divide by zero in startread function in wav.c” (CVE-2017-11332)
+ “invalid memory read in read_samples function in hcom.c” (CVE-2017-11358)
+ “divide by zero in wavwritehdr function in wav.c” (CVE-2017-11359)
resolves #1480674, #1480675, #1480676, and #1480678
* Sat Jun 2 2018 Jiri Kucera <> –
– fix hunks in patches
– prevents division by zero in src/ao.c
+ fixes/prevents “sox killed by SIGFPE (signal 8)” kind of bugs that appear
randomly, depending on reporter’s HW/environment/OS components
+ related bugs: #1309426, #1226675, #1540762, #1492910
* Wed Mar 21 2018 Jiri Kucera <> –
– added patch that fixes WAV to HCOM conversion abortion on 64 bit big endian
+ resolves #1558887
* Mon Mar 19 2018 Jiri Kucera <> –
– CVEs presence tests beakerized and moved to tests/ directory as CI tests
– %check section: creating of additional binaries for testing was replaced
by the libsox binary patch workaround hack; during the testing the hardcoded
path to the directory with sox plugins is replaced for non-root alternative
and hence running the tests under the mock is possible (before the binary
patching, the backup of libsox is made, and at the end of tests it is
restored); this decrease the build time of the package, but may increase the
fragility of the package build process (future features in gcc toolchain may
make the binary patching impossible/not working)
* Thu Feb 22 2018 Jiri Kucera <> –
– Added missing gcc dependency
* Tue Feb 6 2018 Jiri Kucera <> –
– SOX_PLUGINS environment variable is now used only while running %check
during the package building; SOX_PLUGINS are now no longer available to
* Thu Feb 1 2018 Jiri Kucera <> –
– added patch that disables hcom conversion tests on big endian architectures
due to SIGABRT issues
* Tue Jan 30 2018 Jiri Kucera <> –
– added patch that fixes stack-overflow vulnerability in lsx_ms_adpcm_block_expand_i (CVE-2017-15372)
+ resolves #1500553, #1510919
– added patch that fixes use-after-free in lsx_aiffstartread (CVE-2017-15642)
+ resolves #1510923
– added patch that fixes incorrect FSF address in src/ladspa.h
– added patch that introduces SOX_PLUGINS environment variable that overrides
standard sox location for plugins
– added patch that inserts $(DESTDIR) before ${bindir} in src/
installcheck target
– added tests that checks if previously fixed bugs remain fixed in newer releases
– spec file changes:
+ suppressed rpmlint warning about bad Source URL
+ added comments to security patches
+ in %description: added missing sentence period
+ in %prep: suppressed “%setup is not quite” rpmlint warning
+ in %install: removed redundant slashes before %{_libdir}
+ added %check section
* Wed Jan 10 2018 Jiri Kucera <> –
– add patch to fix the heap-based buffer overflow in the ImaExpandS function (CVE-2017-15370)
– resolves #1500554, #1510917

* Wed Jan 3 2018 Jiri Kucera <> –

– resolves #1500570, #1510918
