Description

Simon Kilvington discovered a buffer overflow in the
avcodec_default_get_buffer() function of the ffmpeg library. By
tricking an user into opening a malicious movie which contains
specially crafted PNG images, this could be exploited to execute
arbitrary code with the user's privileges.
