Subject: Re: CVE request: heap corruption in VLC media player

This should only need one ID. Please use CVE-2011-0021.



----- Original Message -----
> From upstream git [1]:
> "This patch resolves two heap corruption vulnerabilities in the CDG
> decoder for VLC media player. In both cases, a failure to properly
> validate indexes into statically-sized arrays on the heap allows a
> maliciously crafted CDG video to corrupt the heap in a controlled
> manner, potentially leading to code execution."
