Timothy B. Terriberry discovered that libvpx contains an integer overflow
vulnerability in the processing of video streams that may allow

libvpx is the VP8 codec SDK used to encode and decode video streams,
typically within a WebM format media file.
libvpx is vulnerable to an integer overflow vulnerability when
processing crafted VP8 video streams.
<impact type="normal">
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted media
file, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running the application, or a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libvpx users should upgrade to the latest stable version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-libs/libvpx-0.9.5&quot;</code>
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these
