Description

The av_probe_input_buffer function in libavformat/utils.c in FFmpeg before 1.0.2, when running with certain -probesize values, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted MP3 file, possibly related to frame size or lack of sufficient "frames to estimate rate."

Solution(s)

  • ffmpeg-upgrade-0_11_3
  • ffmpeg-upgrade-1_0_2
