Subject: CVE id request: vlc local privilege escalation

can I get a CVE id for vlc?

"At startup, VLC recursively scans the modules/ and plugins/ subdirectories
from the current working directory, and tries to execute the vlc_entry__0_8_6
(or another in other VLC versions) symbol from any file matching the
"lib*" pattern."


Kind regards
