Debian DLA-3454-1 : ffmpeg - LTS security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 177254


The remote Debian host is missing one or more security-related updates.


The remote Debian 10 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the dla-3454 advisory.

- An issue was discovered in the FFmpeg package, where vp3_decode_frame in libavcodec/vp3.c lacks check of the return value of av_malloc() and will cause a null pointer dereference, impacting availability.

- A null pointer dereference issue was discovered in 'FFmpeg' in decode_main_header() function of libavformat/nutdec.c file. The flaw occurs because the function lacks check of the return value of avformat_new_stream() and triggers the null pointer dereference error, causing an application to crash.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade the ffmpeg packages.

For Debian 10 buster, these problems have been fixed in version 7
