to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a
crafted GIF file (CVE-2008-3230)

- FFmpeg 0.4.9, as used by MPlayer, allows
context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service
(memory consumption) via unknown vectors, aka a Tcp/udp
memory leak. (CVE-2008-4869)

- Integer signedness error in the fourxm_read_header
function in libavformat/4xm.c in FFmpeg before revision
