Description Alexis Ballier gentoo-dev 2012-07-01 18:58:05 UTC
Not much more information besides vlc-2.0.2 NEWS file:
 * Fix Ogg Heap buffer overflow

and this commit:;h=16e9e126333fb7acb47d363366fee3deadc8331e

2.0.2 should be safe to stabilise though.

ok to proceed with stabilization?

  Heap-based buffer overflow in the Ogg_DecodePacket function in the OGG
  demuxer (modules/demux/ogg.c) in VideoLAN VLC media player before 2.0.2
  allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) and
  possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted OGG file.
