Description Sam James archtester gentoo-dev Security 2020-06-08 20:39:18 UTC
Description:
"A heap-based buffer overflow in the hxxx_AnnexB_to_xVC function in modules/packetizer/hxxx_nal.c in VideoLAN VLC media player through 3.2.8 for iOS, and through 3.0.10 for macOS, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or execute arbitrary code via a crafted H.264 Annex-B video (.avi for example) file."

This doesn't affect us: https://www.videolan.org/security/sb-vlc3011.html

"The affected code was only used by macOS/iOS hardware accelerated decoder (VideoToolbox), meaning other platforms are unaffected."
