CVE-2011-3504

Published: 28 September 2011

The Matroska format decoder in FFmpeg before 0.8.3 does not properly allocate memory, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted file.

Priority

Medium

AuthorNote
mdeslaur
ffmpeg-extra in multiverse needs to have matching version
libav-extra is built with tarball produced by libav package
tyhicks
The Mitre description references MSVR11-011, while the upstream
commit message references MSVR11-080, which does not exist. I believe
there may have been a typo in the commit message.
I believe the ffmpeg commit 77d2ef13 was for the 0.8.3 release and
956c901c was the backport for the 0.7.5 release.
The older ffmpeg packages in lucid and maverick look to have the same
vulnerable code.
