Description Adam Mariš 2015-10-29 09:32:20 EDT
When the parser encountered a deeply nested element with an infinite size then a following element of an upper level was not propagated correctly. Instead the element with the infinite size was added into the EBML element tree a second time resulting in memory access after freeing it and multiple attempts to free the same memory address during destruction.
