It is suspected that this package is vulnerable to a security vulnerability in LZO. As such we ask maintainers with packages suspected to be vulnerable to verify if the package is (or have been) affected.
Please see the information contained in the tracker bug 515246. "An integer overflow may occur when processing any variant of a "literal run" in the lzo1x_decompress_safe function. Each of these three locations is subject to an integer overflow when processing zero bytes.", additional information about the upstream vulnerability is available at http://seclists.org/oss-sec/2014/q2/665
2.2.4 upstream release seems to contain the fix. So a version bump should do.
*** Bug 515236 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
ffmpeg got its own advisory and CVE assignment in http://seclists.org/oss-sec/2014/q2/668 . Making this bug the primary and related bugs as duplicates.
http://ffmpeg.org/security.html marks it as fixed in 2.2.4 for the 2.2 branch,
we'll go with 2.2.12+ since 1.2 (current stable) is not maintained anymore
Since 1.1.X and 1.2.X is no longer maintained and
2.2.14 is being stabilized, but higher version without bugs is 2.2.15. Once stabilized we can clean up 1.1.x and 1.2.x
