Description Johannes Segitz 2017-11-22 10:13:37 UTC
CVE-2017-16840

The VC-2 Video Compression encoder in FFmpeg 3.4 allows remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) because of incorrect buffer
padding for non-Haar wavelets, related to libavcodec/vc2enc.c and
libavcodec/vc2enc_dwt.c.
