Description

FFmpeg is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the libavcodec library within the ffmpeg project. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted file, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause a denial of service.
