Description Yury German Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev 2011-03-22 04:48:56 UTC
Specific flaw exists with the installation of the Thunder Decode codec. If a malicious page or a file is executed by a user the decoder will fail to accommodate for the size of the row and can lead to a heap-based buffer overflow.
