Notes
mdeslaur> ffmpeg-extra in multiverse needs to have matching version
mdeslaur> libav-extra is built with tarball produced by libav package
tyhicks> The Mitre description references MSVR11-011, while the upstream
tyhicks> commit message references MSVR11-080, which does not exist. I believe
tyhicks> there may have been a typo in the commit message.
tyhicks> I believe the ffmpeg commit 77d2ef13 was for the 0.8.3 release and
tyhicks> 956c901c was the backport for the 0.7.5 release.
tyhicks> The older ffmpeg packages in lucid and maverick look to have the same
tyhicks> vulnerable code.
