Description

This update for sox fixes the following security issues:

allowed remote attackers to cause a DoS (invalid memory read) via a
crafted hcom file.

remote attackers to cause a DoS (divide-by-zero) when converting a a
crafted snd file to a wav file.

an infinite loop with a resultant NULL pointer dereference, which may
allow a remote attacker to cause a denial-of-service.
