The prepare_sdp_description function in ffserver.c in FFmpeg before 1.0.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via vectors related to the rtp format.

Comment 3 Stefan Cornelius 2014-03-24 14:19:24 UTC

Not vulnerable. This issue did not affect the versions of qffmpeg as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and ffmpeg-spice as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 as they did not include support for ffserver.
