Doc Text:
A flaw was found in GStreamer. An integer overflow can lead to a heap-based buffer overflow in the mkv demuxer when processing a specially crafted Matroska/WebM file using bzip decompression. This vulnerability can result in application crash, memory corruption, and code execution.

Description Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2022-09-29 14:32:30 UTC
DOS / potential heap overwrite in mkv demuxing using bzip decompression. Integer overflow in matroskademux element in bzip decompression function which causes a segfault, or could cause a heap overwrite, depending on libc and OS. Depending on the libc used, and the underlying OS capabilities, it could be just a segfault or a heap overwrite. If the libc uses mmap for large chunks, and the OS supports mmap, then it is just a segfault (because the realloc before the integer overflow will use mremap to reduce the size of the chunk, and it will start to write to unmapped memory). However, if using a libc implementation that does not use mmap, or if the OS does not support mmap while using libc, then this could result in a heap overwrite.
