Description

A missing movie attribute is interpreted as an extension, but the absence of the extension is not flagged as an error, resulting in a de-reference of a NULL pointer. The update requires either the movie attribute or the extension to be present for a well-formed movie. Credit to Piotr Bania (bania.piotr@gmail.com) for reporting this issue.
