Subject: CVE request: VLC media player - DLL preloading vulnerability


We fixed the DLL preloading vulnerability in VLC media player with this commit:;a=blobdiff;f=bin/winvlc.c;h=ac9b97ca9f5f9ba001f13bf61eb5127a1c1dbcbf;hp=2d09cba320e3b0def7069ce1ebab25d1340161c5;hb=43a31df56c37bd62c691cdbe3c1f11babd164b56;hpb=2d366da738b19f8d761d7084746c6db6f52808c6

VLC was exploitable by loading wintab32.dll, a component request by
Qt, as shown in
There's another possibility with DMO.

Will there be a CVE ID by vulnerable application (presumably, this
will need a lot of IDs), or only one for Windows?

Best regards,
