"g_ has discovered a moderately critical vulnerability in VLC Media Player, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user’s system.
The vulnerability is caused due to an integer overflow error within the “Open()” function in modules/demux/tta.c. This can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via specially crafted TTA data. Successful exploitation may potentially allow execution of arbitrary code.
