In FLAC__bitreader_read_rice_signed_block of bitreader.c, there is a possible out-of-bounds read due to a heap buffer overflow.

This could lead to remote information disclosure with no additional execution privileges needed. However, user interaction is needed for exploitation.

For Debian 8 jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 1.3.0-3+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your flac packages.
