Description

Integer overflow in the ff_ivi_init_planes function in libavcodec/ivi.c in FFmpeg before 2.6.5, 2.7.x before 2.7.3, and 2.8.x through 2.8.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds heap-memory access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted image dimensions in Indeo Video Interactive data.

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.
