VideoLAN VLC Media Player MP4 Demuxer Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

VideoLAN VLC media player is prone to a remote code-execution vulnerability because it fails to adequately parse specially crafted MP4 files.

An attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code, which can result in the complete compromise of the computer. Failed exploit attempts will result in a denial-of-service condition.

Versions prior to VideoLAN VLC media player 0.8.6e are vulnerable.
