It was discovered that FFmpeg incorrectly handled certain malformed
Atrac 3 files. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted Atrac 3
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-2012-0853)

It was discovered that FFmpeg incorrectly handled certain malformed
Shorten files. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted Shorten
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-2012-0858)

It was discovered that FFmpeg incorrectly handled certain malformed
Vorbis files. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted Vorbis
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-2012-0859)

Fabian Yamaguchi discovered that FFmpeg incorrectly handled certain
malformed VQA files. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted VQA
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-2012-0947).
