Description

libavcodec/utvideodec.c in FFmpeg before 2.5.2 does not check for a zero value of a slice height, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds array access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted Ut Video data, related to the (1) restore_median and (2) restore_median_il functions.

Solution(s)

  • ubuntu-upgrade-libavcodec53
  • ubuntu-upgrade-libavformat53

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.
