The problem has been fixed upstream in version 1.3.1-pre1.
A stack overflow and a heap overflow condition have been found in
libFLAC when parsing a maliciously crafted .flac file, which may result
in arbitrary code execution.
An attacker can execute arbitrary code by supplying a specially crafted
.flac file to the libFLAC decoder.
