Introduction:
=============
FAAC is an encoder for a lossy sound compression scheme specified in MPEG-2 Part 7 and MPEG-4 Part 3 standards and known as Advanced Audio Coding (AAC). This encoder is useful for producing files that can be played back on iPod. Moreover, iPod does not understand other sound compression schemes in video files.

Affected version:
=====
1.28

Vulnerability Description:
==========================
1.
the wav_open_read function in frontend/input.c in Freeware Advanced Audio Coder (FAAC) 1.28 can cause a denial of service(large loop) via a crafted wav file.

./faac faac_1.28_wav_open_read_large_loop.wav -o out.aac

POC:
faac_1.28_wav_open_read_large_loop.wav
CVE:
CVE-2017-9129

2.
the faacEncOpen function in libfaac/frame.c in Freeware Advanced Audio Coder (FAAC) 1.28 can cause a denial of service(invalid memory read and application crash) via a crafted wav file.

./faac faac_1.28_faacEncOpen_invalid_memory.wav -o out.aac
