CVE-2016-1897 (retired)

Priority
Description
FFmpeg 2.x allows remote attackers to conduct cross-origin attacks and read
arbitrary files by using the concat protocol in an HTTP Live Streaming
(HLS) M3U8 file, leading to an external HTTP request in which the URL
string contains the first line of a local file.
Notes
 mdeslaur> DSA-3506-1 fixed this by building with --disable-protocol=concat
