Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in FFmpeg, a multimedia 
player, server and encoder. Multiple input validations in the decoders/ 
demuxers for Shorten, Chines AVS video, VP5, VP6, AVI, AVS and MPEG-1/2
files could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

Most of these issues were discovered by Mateusz Jurczyk and Gynvael 
Coldwind.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
version 4:0.5.10-1.

For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution (sid), 
these problems have been fixed in version 6:0.8.5-1 of the source package
