Subject: [CVE-2017-15672]: ffmpeg: read out of bounds of buffer when it
 parsing an craft mp4 file.

Affected package: ffmpeg
Affected versions: <= 3.3.4

FFmpeg could read out of bounds of buffer when it parsing an craft mp4 file.

While ffmpeg calculating “bytestream_end” in ff_init_range_encoder() of libavcodec/rangecoder.c,
it uses a small “buf_size”. But when using this structure in read_header() of libavcodec/ffv1dec.c,
It will minus a bigger “trailer” than “buf_size” to read “size” through AV_RB24().
So it reads the front memory of “bytestream”, and get an error “size”.

The issue was fixed with the following commit:
