Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2015-12-15 08:58:22 UTC
Security researcher Ronald Crane reported a vulnerability found through code inspection. This issue is an integer overflow while processing an MP4 format video file when an a erroneously-small buffer is allocated and then overrun, resulting in a potentially exploitable crash.

This issue only affects 64-bit versions with 32-bit versions being unaffected.
