Subject: [CVE-2017-15186]: ffmpeg: Double free when ffmpeg parsing an craft
 AVI file to MKV file using ffvhuff decoder

Affected package: ffmpeg
Affected versions: <= 3.3.4

FFmpeg trigger double-free when it parsing an craft AVI file to MKV file using ffvhuff decoder.

From the back trace, we can see that ffmpeg frees a filter array firstly:

#0  av_free (ptr=0x32bb920) at libavutil/mem.c:209
#1  0x000000000162a759 in initFilter (outFilter=0x32ae7f8, filterPos=0x32ae818, outFilterSize=0x32ae82c, xInc=65536, srcW=45, dstW=45, filterAlign=1,
    one=4096, flags=8196, cpu_flags=1037275, srcFilter=0x0, dstFilter=0x0, param=0x32adef0, srcPos=128, dstPos=128) at libswscale/utils.c:713

#4  0x00000000004675c8 in avfilter_config_links (filter=0x32ac5c0) at libavfilter/avfilter.c:316
#5  0x000000000046754b in avfilter_config_links (filter=0x32acae0) at libavfilter/avfilter.c:305

But because of an error handing, this filter will be freed again when exit program:

#0  av_free (ptr=0x32bb920) at libavutil/mem.c:209
#1  0x00000000017d59b3 in av_freep (arg=0x7fffffffe2b8) at libavutil/mem.c:219

#10 0x000000000040eff7 in exit_program (ret=0) at cmdutils.c:138
