Description Tanu Kaskinen 2014-09-07 18:00:49 UTC
I haven't tried this in practice, but it seems that the server doesn't check whether the sink input's or source output's resampler supports rate changes when a client sends a request to change the stream's rate. When using libpulse, invalid rate changes are filtered at client side, but a malicious client can talk to the server without using libpulse.
