Title: FFmpeg Matroska Codec matroska_parse_block Function Unspecified Buffer Overflow
Feb 15, 2012
FFmpeg contains an unspecified overflow condition in the 'matroska_parse_block' function in libavformat/matroskadec.c. With a specially crafted MKV file, a context-dependent attacker can cause a heap-based buffer overflow, resulting in a denial of service or potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code.
