Xvid Video Codec Macroblock Number Heap Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

The Xvid video codec is prone to a heap-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because the software fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied data.

An attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary within the context of an application using the affected codec. Failed exploit attempts will result in a denial-of-service vulnerability.

Versions prior to Xvid 1.2.2 are vulnerable.
