Security patch Earlier today I was notified of a possible security flaw in the command line frontend for FAAD2, on a specially constructed file the frontend can cause a heap overflow when reading from a buffer returned by the decoder library. A patch can be found here. Note that this only affects the frontend, not the library. Many thanks to ICST-ERCIS (Peking University) for reporting this issue.

Update First update in a long time. I added a links section. I hope I'll have some time to address some open issues in FAAD2 and FAAC soon.

New download packages Finally some new download packages, see the download section. These should work better under linux etc. If not, please report in the SourceForge bugtracker for the faac project. Not much is new, just some small fixes and third party committed Blackfin support. Some more work on this Blackfin support will probably be done soon.
Other news is the little change in the copyright header and the readme of FAAD2. Apparantly a lot of projects were troubled about the extra requirement that the old header asked for.

Website back up The website is finally back up. Some things have not been recovered yet. I will update the download section with Linux safe source packages soon.
