More information:

Multiple security issues were discovered in Sox, the Swiss Army knife of sound processing programs, which could result in denial of service or potentially the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed audio file is processed.

For the stable distribution (bullseye), these problems have been fixed in version 14.4.2+git20190427-2+deb11u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your sox packages.
