|Description||The picture_Release function in misc/picture.c in VideoLAN VLC media player 2.1.5 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (write access violation) via a crafted M2V file.|
|Source||CVE (at NVD; CERT, LWN, oss-sec, fulldisc, bugtraq, EDB, Metasploit, Red Hat, Ubuntu, Gentoo, SuSE, Mageia, GitHub code/issues, web search, more)|
|NVD severity||medium (attack range: remote)|
This was originally reported for VLC; but upstream states that it is in libavcodec
This seems to be Windows-specific issue, the reported error couldn't be reproduced
with any ffmpeg release and libav/0.8.
