New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

libavcodec/utils.c in FFmpeg before 2.4.2 omits a certain codec ID during enforcement of alignment, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted JV data.
