Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities were found in FFmpeg, the worst of which might
enable remote attackers to cause user-assisted execution of arbitrary
code.

Background
==========

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

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

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  media-video/ffmpeg           < 1.0.7                    >= 1.0.7

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

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

Impact
======

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted media
file, possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running the application or a Denial of Service.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All FFmpeg users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-video/ffmpeg-1.0.7"
