Subject: No checks on header read
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 622b
The _read_data sub in does not do any kind of sanity checks of the header nor the data size it reads in. Normally this shouldn't pose a problem, but RIFF files are often created quite badly, and not to spec(yet still play fine). Some files have arbitrary data at the beginning and/or end of the file. File::Format::RIFF::Chunk->_read_header will read in 4 bytes and return that as the size of the chunk. If this 4 bytes is not part of a correctly made chunk (or not part of a chunk at all), then the value added to the $to_read value in Container->_read_data could be anything.
