Decoding a specially crafted mp3 file will result in unexpected process termination or, potentially, arbitrary code execution due to heap corruption. Patches have been made available by PacketVideo: http://ocert.org/patches/2009-002/opencore_mp3_dec.patch http://review.source.android.com/Gerrit#change,8815 Affected version: OpenCore <= 2.0 (secondary affected versions) Android without change 8815 Fixed version: OpenCore >= 2.0 with change 8815 Android with change 8815 Credit: Initial vulnerability report and sample crasher provided by Owen Arden <owen@...urityevaluators.com> and Charlie Miller <cmiller@...urityevaluators.com>. Thanks to PacketVideo for the comprehensive analysis and patching.
