Updated vlc/mad packages fix security vulnerabilityPublication date: 10 Jun 2016
Affected Mageia releases : 5
A vulnerability was found in processing QuickTime IMA files. VLC does not check that the number of channels in the input stream is less than or equal to the size of the buffer, resulting in an out-of-bounds write potential for remote code execution via a malicious media file (CVE-2016-5108). The vlc package has been updated to version 2.2.4, which fixes this issue and other bugs. Also, the mad package has been patched to fix an out-of-bounds write which could cause VLC or other applications linked to that library to crash on an invalid mp3 file.
