However, I tend to think that this one does. libvpx is used in browsers and crashing browsers seems an issue to me. Also, it could be used to crash automatic media re-encoding-services (e.g. backends of video websites like youtube). So I'd request a CVE. -- Hanno Böck mail/jabber: hanno@...eck.de GPG: BBB51E42 http://www.hboeck.de/ Download attachment "signature.asc" of type "application/pgp-signature" (837 bytes)
