and streamer. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:

corruption, which can be triggered by a crafted Cinepak file.

CVE-2008-1881

Luigi Auriemma discovered that it is possible to execute arbitrary code
via a long subtitle in an SSA file.

CVE-2008-2147

It was discovered that vlc is prone to a search path vulnerability,
which allows local users to perform privilege escalations.

CVE-2008-2430

Alin Rad Pop discovered that it is possible to execute arbitrary code
when opening a WAV file containing a large fmt chunk.

CVE-2008-3794

For the oldstable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed
in version 0.8.6-svn20061012.debian-5.1+etch3.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 0.8.6.h-4+lenny2, which was already included in the lenny
release.

For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution
(sid), these problems have been fixed in version 0.8.6.h-5.
