Subject: CVE request: Heap overflow in VLC 2.1.6 processing wav files

Hi,

We found a buffer overflow in the parsing and processing of wav files in
VLC (version 2.1.6-0). It was tested in Ubuntu 14.04 (x86_64), but it will
probably affects other versions as well. Fortunately, it seems to be fixed
in the last release of VLC. Here you can see the gdb stack trace:

It is evident that the memcpy operation has an abnormally large size
parameter (4290773038). Find attached a test case to reproduce it.

Gustavo.
