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

The vmd_decode function in libavcodec/vmdvideo.c in FFmpeg before 2.5.2 does not validate the relationship between a certain length value and the frame width, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds array access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted Sierra VMD video data.
