Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in FFmpeg, a multimedia 
player, server and encoder. Multiple input validations in the decoders/
demuxers for Westwood Studios VQA, Apple MJPEG-B, Theora, Matroska, 
Vorbis, Sony ATRAC3, DV, NSV, files could lead to the execution of
arbitrary code.

These issues were discovered by Aki Helin, Mateusz Jurczyk, Gynvael 
Coldwind, and Michael Niedermayer.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 4:0.5.8-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 6:0.8.2-1 of libav.

We recommend that you upgrade your ffmpeg packages.
