Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in FLAC, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerabilities are caused due to various errors e.g. integer overflow errors, double-free errors, and boundary errors in various components when processing FLAC media files and can be exploited to cause heap-based or stack-based buffer overflows via specially-crafted FLAC media files.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
