|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: FFmpeg: Buffer overflows (GLSA 200609-09)
Date: September 13, 2006
Updated: December 13, 2006
FFmpeg is vulnerable to multiple buffer overflows that might be exploited to execute arbitrary code.
FFmpeg is a very fast video and audio converter.
Vulnerable: < 0.4.9_p20060530
Unaffected: >= 0.4.9_p20060530
Architectures: All supported architectures
FFmpeg contains buffer overflows in the AVI processing code.
An attacker could trigger the buffer overflows by enticing a user to load a specially crafted AVI file in an application using the FFmpeg library. This might result in the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the running application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All FFmpeg users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-video/ffmpeg-0.4.9_p20060530"
