Description

nsvdec.c in libavcodec in FFmpeg 0.7.x before 0.7.12 and 0.8.x before 0.8.11, and in Libav 0.5.x before 0.5.9, 0.6.x before 0.6.6, 0.7.x before 0.7.5, and 0.8.x before 0.8.1, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and write) via a crafted NSV file that triggers "use of uninitialized streams."

Solution(s)

  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-media-video-ffmpeg
