ID CVE-2017-15672
Summary The read_header function in libavcodec/ffv1dec.c in FFmpeg 3.3.4 and earlier allows remote attackers to have unspecified impact via a crafted MP4 file, which triggers an out-of-bounds read.
Vulnerable Configurations
  • FFmpeg 3.3.4
Base: 6.8
  • Overread Buffers
    An adversary attacks a target by providing input that causes an application to read beyond the boundary of a defined buffer. This typically occurs when a value influencing where to start or stop reading is set to reflect positions outside of the valid memory location of the buffer. This type of attack may result in exposure of sensitive information, a system crash, or arbitrary code execution.
