Description

The gif_decode_frame function in gifdec.c in libavcodec in FFmpeg before 1.2.1 does not properly manage the disposal methods of frames, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds array access and application crash) via crafted GIF data.

Solution(s)

  • ffmpeg-upgrade-1_1_5
  • ffmpeg-upgrade-1_2_1
  • ffmpeg-upgrade-2_0
