    Debian Bug     : 641478
    
    Multiple vulnerabilities were found in the ffmpeg, a multimedia player,
    server and encoder:
    
    CVE-2011-3362
    
        An integer signedness error in decode_residual_block function of 
        the Chinese AVS video (CAVS) decoder in libavcodec can lead to 
        denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or 
        possible code execution via a crafted CAVS file.
    
    CVE-2011-3973/CVE-2011-3974
    
        Multiple errors in the Chinese AVS video (CAVS) decoder can lead to 
        denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) via an 
        invalid bitstream.
    
    CVE-2011-3504
    
        A memory allocation problem in the Matroska format decoder can lead 
        to code execution via a crafted file.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4:0.5.5-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4:0.7.2-1 of the libav source package.
    
    Security support for ffmpeg has been discontinued for the oldstable
    distribution (lenny) before in DSA 2306.
    The current version in oldstable is not supported by upstream anymore
    and is affected by several security issues. Backporting fixes for these
    and any future issues has become unfeasible and therefore we needed to
    drop our security support for the version in oldstable.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ffmpeg packages.
