Description Carsten Lohrke (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-10-06 06:29:10 UTC
Multiple buffer overflows in libavcodec in ffmpeg before 0.4.9_p20060530 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code via multiple unspecified vectors in (1) dtsdec.c, (2) vorbis.c, (3) rm.c, (4) sierravmd.c, (5) smacker.c, (6) tta.c, (7) 4xm.c, (8) alac.c, (9) cook.c, (10) shorten.c, (11) smacker.c, (12) snow.c, and (13) tta.c. NOTE: it is likely that this is a different vulnerability than CVE-2005-4048 and CVE-2006-2802.

I guess at least xine will be affected as well(?). Also some architecture have only older ffmpeg versions keyworded/stable.
