Hi PulseAudio devs,

Can someone tell me whether PulseAudio can actually be affected by the
libsndfile vulnerability CVE-2014-9496?

"It looks like the affected code is in reading SD2 (Sound Designer II)
files and writing AIFF files".

I am thinking the answer is "no".

Currently I am maintaining both X2Go Client for Windows[1] and my
unofficial PulseAudio builds for Windows[2][3]. X2Go Client for
Windows bundles the PulseAudio builds. So I am trying to figure out
whether I urgently need to update them with the patched libsndfile
