Description

The tak_decode_frame function in libavcodec/takdec.c in FFmpeg before 2.1.4 does not properly validate a certain bits-per-sample value, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds array access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted TAK (aka Tom's lossless Audio Kompressor) data.

Solution(s)

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

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
