Description Adam Mariš 2015-10-29 09:36:29 EDT
KaxInternalBlock::ReadData(): Fixed an invalid memory access. When reading a block group or a simple block that uses EBML lacing the frame sizes indicated in the lacing weren't checked against the available number of bytes. If the indicated frame size was bigger than the whole block's size the parser would read beyond the end of the buffer resulting in a heap information leak.
