Intrusion Prevention



This indicates an attempt to exploit one of several integer overflow vulnerabilities in libFLAC.
LibFLAC is used by numerous media applications to decode Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) files. There are numerous buffer overflow vulnerabilities in libFLAC. They are a result of the application's failure to bounds check user supplied information before placing it in memory. Successful exploitation may allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the victim system or cause a denial of service.
