Resolution: Fixed

The Python 2.7, 3.4 - 3.6 audioop.lin2adpcm function suffers from a buffer over-read caused by unchecked access to stepsizeTable at line 1436 of Modules\audioop.c:

} else if ( !PyArg_ParseTuple(state, "ii", &valpred, &index) )
return 0;

step = stepsizeTable[index];

Because the index variable can be controlled via the third parameter of audioop.lin2adpcm, this behavior could potentially be exploited to disclose arbitrary memory, should an application expose the parameter to the attack surface.

To fix this issue, it is recommended that bounds checking be performed prior to accessing stepsizeTable.
