Package        : vlc
CVE ID         : CVE-2015-5949

Loren Maggiore of Trail of Bits discovered that the 3GP parser of VLC, a
multimedia player and streamer, could dereference an arbitrary pointer
due to insufficient restrictions on a writable buffer. This could allow
remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via crafted 3GP files.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.2.0~rc2-2+deb8u1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed shortly.

We recommend that you upgrade your vlc packages.
