New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionMultiple vulnerabilities have been found in libav :
The ff_mjpeg_decode_sof function in libavcodec/mjpegdec.c in Libav before 0.8.18 does not validate the number of components in a JPEG-LS Start Of Frame segment, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds array access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted Motion JPEG data.
The ff_h263_decode_mba function in libavcodec/ituh263dec.c in Libav before 11.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (divide-by-zero error and application crash) via a file with crafted dimensions.
The aac_sync function in libavcodec/aac_parser.c in Libav before 11.5 is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 6:0.8.18-0+deb7u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your libav packages.
