Title: VLC: Buffer overflow (GLSA 202005-11)
Exploitable: local, remote
A buffer overflow in VLC might allow local or remote attacker(s) to
execute arbitrary code.
VLC is a cross-platform media player and streaming server.
Vulnerable: < 3.0.10
Unaffected: >= 3.0.10
Architectures: All supported architectures
A buffer overflow in DecodeBlock in sdl_image.c was discovered.
A remote user could craft a specifically crafted image file that could
execute arbitrary code or cause denial of service.
The user should refrain from opening files from untrusted third parties
or accessing untrusted remote sites (or disable the VLC browser plugins),
until they upgrade.
All VLC users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-video/vlc-3.0.10"
