DESCRIPTION:
Luigi Auriemma has reported a vulnerability in VLC Media Player,
which can potentially be exploited by malicious people to compromise
a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in within
modules/access/rtsp/real_sdpplin.c when processing SDP data (Session
Description Protocol) for RTSP sessions. This can be exploited to
cause a heap-based buffer overflow e.g. when a user is enticed to
connect to a malicious server.

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is reported in version 0.8.6d. Other versions may
also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Do not connect to untrusted streaming servers.
