Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : libvpx (MDVSA-2012:023-1)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 58103
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA vulnerability has been found and corrected in libvpx :
VP8 Codec SDK (libvpx) before 1.0.0 Duclair allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via (1) unspecified corrupt input or (2) by starting decoding from a P-frame, which triggers an out-of-bounds read, related to the clamping of motion vectors in SPLITMV blocks (CVE-2012-0823).
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
This is a symbolic advisory correction because there was a clash with MDVSA-2012:023 that addressed libxml2.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
