DESCRIPTION:
A vulnerability has been reported 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 within the MP4
demuxer (modules/demux/mp4/mp4.c). This can be exploited to overwrite
an almost arbitrary memory address via a specially crafted MPEG-4
file.

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.

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

SOLUTION:
Apply vendor patch.
http://www.videolan.org/patches/vlc-0.8.6-CORE-2008-0130.patch

The vendor will reportedly release version 0.8.6e soon, which fixes
the vulnerability.

Do not open untrusted files or browse untrusted websites.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
The vendor credits Felipe Manzano and Anibal Sacco, Core Security
Technologies.
