Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in libav, the worst of which
may allow execution of arbitrary code.

Background
==========

Libav is a complete solution to record, convert and stream audio and
video.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in libav. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted media
file in an application linked against libav, possibly resulting in
execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the application, a
Denial of Service condition or access the content of arbitrary local
files.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.
