<description>
<p>
FFmpeg contains buffer overflows in the AVI processing code.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
An attacker could trigger the buffer overflows by enticing a user to
load a specially crafted AVI file in an application using the FFmpeg
library. This might result in the execution of arbitrary code in the
context of the running application.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All FFmpeg users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-video/ffmpeg-0.4.9_p20060530&quot;</code>
</resolution>
