CVE-2010-3429

  Cesar Bernardini and Felipe Andres Manzano reported an arbitrary offset 
  dereference vulnerability in the libavcodec, in particular in the flic file

  arbitrary code. Mplayer is also affected by this problem, as well as other 
  software that use this library.

  FFmpeg.


This upload also fixes an incomplete patch from DSA-2000-1. Michael Gilbert 
noticed that there was remaining vulnerabilities, which  may cause a denial of 
service and potentially execution of arbitrary code.

For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.svn20080206-18+lenny3.
