Integer overflow in libtheora in Xiph.Org Theora before 1.1, as used
in Mozilla Firefox 3.5 before 3.5.6 and SeaMonkey before 2.0.1, allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or
possibly execute arbitrary code via a video with large dimensions.

Comment 1 Tomas Hoger 2009-12-21 08:26:51 UTC
This issue did not affect versions of libtheora shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5.  Current Fedora versions include libtheor 1.1.0, which already contains the fixes.  Firefox-embedded copy was updated via rebase to 3.5.6.
