Reference: URL:

Integer signedness error in the mms_ReceiveCommand function in
modules/access/mms/mmstu.c in VLC Media Player 0.8.6i allows remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted mmst link with a
negative size value, which bypasses a size check and triggers an
integer overflow followed by a stack-based buffer overflow.
