Description

libvpx contains an out-of-bounds read flaw in the vp8_mv_bit_cost() and mv_err_cost() functions in vp8/encoder/mcomp.c that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to crash a process linked against the library or potentially disclose sensitive memory contents.
