Description :

Steve Manzuik discovered that FFmpeg incorrectly handled certain
malformed Matroska files. If a user were tricked into opening a

application crash, or possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2011-3504)

Phillip Langlois discovered that FFmpeg incorrectly handled certain
malformed QDM2 streams. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted
QDM2 stream file, an attacker could cause a denial of service via
application crash, or possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2011-4351)

Phillip Langlois discovered that FFmpeg incorrectly handled certain
malformed VP3 streams. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted
file, an attacker could cause a denial of service via application
crash, or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user invoking the program. This issue only affected Ubuntu 10.10.

It was discovered that FFmpeg incorrectly handled certain malformed
VMD files. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted VMD file, an
attacker could cause a denial of service via application crash, or

invoking the program. (CVE-2011-4364)

Phillip Langlois discovered that FFmpeg incorrectly handled certain
malformed SVQ1 streams. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted
