Subject: (maybe) CVE request: libvpx before 1.0 crasher

libvpx (webm library) has released a new version that fixes a crasher

I'm not 100% sure if and in what situation crash bugs qualify as
security issues.

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.
