CVE-2009-4635

Priority
Low
Description
FFmpeg 0.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service and
possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted MOV container with improperly
ordered tags that cause (1) mov.c and (2) utils.c to use inconsistent codec
types and identifiers, leading to processing of a video-structure pointer
by the mp3 decoder, and a stack-based buffer overflow.
