Florian Weimer of Red Hat Product Security discovered that libvdpau, the VDPAU wrapper library, did not properly validate environment variables, allowing local attackers to gain additional privileges.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 0.4.1-7+deb7u1.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 0.8-3+deb8u1.

For the testing distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 1.1.1-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 1.1.1-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libvdpau packages.
