    Package        : liblivemedia
    CVE ID         : CVE-2013-6933
    
    A vulnerability was found in liveMedia, a set of C++ libraries for 
    multimedia streaming. RTSP messages starting with whitespace were assumed 
    to have a zero length, triggering an integer underflow, infinite loop, 
    and then a buffer overflow. This could allow remote attackers to cause a 
    denial of service (crash) or arbitrary code execution via crafted RTSP 
    messages.
    
    The packages vlc and mplayer have also been updated to reflect this 
    improvement.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in 
    liblivemedia version 2012.05.17-1+wheezy1, vlc version 2.0.3-5+deb7u2+b1, 
    and mplayer version 2:1.0~rc4.dfsg1+svn34540-1+deb7u1.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been 
    fixed in liblivemedia version 2014.01.13-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in 
    liblivemedia version 2014.01.13-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your liblivemedia, vlc, and mplayer 
    packages.
