Uninitialized Read in ParseCaffHeaderConfig() #66

Copy link - contains fuzzed input

The parsing of the attached file uninit-caff.wav leads to a read of an uninitialized location in memory. The uninitialized read can be uncovered using a tool such as Valgrind or MemorySanitizer. For example:

$ valgrind cli/wavpack uninit-caff.wav
==21063== Memcheck, a memory error detector
==21063== Copyright (C) 2002-2017, and GNU GPL'd, by Julian Seward et al.
==21063== Using Valgrind-3.13.0 and LibVEX; rerun with -h for copyright info
==21063== Command: ./cli/wavpack uninit-caff.wav

==21063==    by 0x404AE2: main (wavpack.c:1273)

It appears that this is an uninitialized read of the field caf_audio_format.mBytesPerPacket on this line.

This is fixed now, thanks!
