Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: FFmpeg: Buffer overflows (GLSA 200609-09)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: September 13, 2006
Updated: December 13, 2006
Bug(s): #133520
ID: 200609-09

Synopsis

FFmpeg is vulnerable to multiple buffer overflows that might be exploited to execute arbitrary code.

Background

FFmpeg is a very fast video and audio converter.

Affected Packages

Package: media-video/ffmpeg
Vulnerable: < 0.4.9_p20060530
Unaffected: >= 0.4.9_p20060530
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

FFmpeg contains buffer overflows in the AVI processing code.

Impact

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.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All FFmpeg users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-video/ffmpeg-0.4.9_p20060530"
