    Fabian Yamaguchi discovered multiple vulnerabilities in VLC, a multimedia
    player and streamer:
    
    CVE-2014-9626
    
        The MP4 demuxer, when parsing string boxes, did not properly check
        the length of the box, leading to a possible integer underflow when
        using this length value in a call to memcpy(). This could allow
        remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or arbitrary
        code execution via crafted MP4 files.
    
    CVE-2014-9627
    
        The MP4 demuxer, when parsing string boxes, did not properly check
        that the conversion of the box length from 64bit integer to 32bit
        integer on 32bit platforms did not cause a truncation, leading to
        a possible buffer overflow. This could allow remote attackers to
        cause a denial of service (crash) or arbitrary code execution via
        crafted MP4 files.

    CVE-2014-9629
    
        The Dirac and Schroedinger encoders did not properly check for an
        integer overflow on 32bit platforms, leading to a possible buffer
        overflow. This could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of
        service (crash) or arbitrary code execution.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.0.3-5+deb7u2.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been
    fixed in version 2.2.0~rc2-2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.2.0~rc2-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your vlc packages.
