DSA-2043 vlc -- integer overflow
|ID: oval:org.mitre.oval:def:7409||Date: (C)2010-05-24 (M)2015-06-19|
|Class: PATCH||Family: unix|
tixxDZ discovered a vulnerability in vlc, the multimedia player and streamer. Missing data validation in vlc"s real data transport implementation enable an integer underflow and consequently an unbounded buffer operation. A maliciously crafted stream could thus enable an attacker to execute arbitrary code. No Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifier is available for this issue.
