Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : ffmpeg (MDVSA-2014:129)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 76437
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

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


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in ffmpeg :

Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in libavcodec/wmalosslessdec.c in FFmpeg before 0.11 have unknown impact and attack vectors related to (1) size of mclms arrays, (2) a get_bits(0) in decode_ac_filter, and (3) too many bits in decode_channel_residues(). (CVE-2012-2795).

libavcodec/wmalosslessdec.c in FFmpeg before 2.1.4 uses an incorrect data-structure size for certain coefficients, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted WMA data (CVE-2014-2098).

The msrle_decode_frame function in libavcodec/msrle.c in FFmpeg before 2.1.4 does not properly calculate line sizes, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds array access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted Microsoft RLE video data (CVE-2014-2099).

The mpegts_write_pmt function in the MPEG2 transport stream (aka DVB) muxer (libavformat/mpegtsenc.c) in FFmpeg, possibly 2.1 and earlier, allows remote attackers to have unspecified impact and vectors, which trigger an out-of-bounds write (CVE-2014-2263).

A use-after-free vulnerability in FFmpeg before 1.1.9 involving seek operations on video data could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (CVE-2012-5150).

An integer overflow can occur when processing any variant of a literal run in the av_lzo1x_decode function (CVE-2014-4609, CVE-2014-4610).

The updated packages have been upgraded to the 0.10.14 version which is not vulnerable to these issues.


Update the affected packages.
