Description Victor Pereira 2015-12-30 08:09:40 UTC

The ff_get_buffer function in libavcodec/utils.c in FFmpeg before 2.8.4
preserves width and height values after a failure, which allows remote attackers
to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds array access) or possibly have
unspecified other impact via a crafted .mov file.

Comment 2 Andreas Stieger 2016-01-04 16:40:37 UTC
Thanks, update is running. 

The following contains a diff:
osc rdiff multimedia:libs/ffmpeg openSUSE:Maintenance:4481/ffmpeg.openSUSE_Leap_42.1_Update

  -BuildRequires:  pkgconfig(librtmp)

Assuming this is intentional.
Comment 3 Jan Engelhardt 2016-01-04 16:46:02 UTC
librtmp is still local to multimedia:libs only, and not present in 42.1 or TW.
Comment 4 Andreas Stieger 2016-01-12 15:15:48 UTC
Releasing update
Comment 5 Swamp Workflow Management 2016-01-12 19:12:05 UTC
