[原文]The alsa-lib package in Red Hat Linux 4 disables stack protection for the libasound.so library, which makes it easier for attackers to execute arbitrary code if there are other vulnerabilities in the library.
Alsa contains a flaw that may allow a malicious user to bypass stack execution protection for the 'libasound.so' library. The issue is triggered when any application is linked to libasound. It is possible that the flaw may allow a local attacker to disable stack execution protection for the linked applications resulting in a loss of integrity.
Currently, there are no known upgrades, patches, or workarounds available to correct this issue. Some Unix vendors have released patches for their own distributions.
