<h1>Security Advisory 1601</h1>
<pre>
Summary : Buffer Overflow in Processing QuickTime IMA Files
Date : June 2016
Affected versions : VLC media player 2.2.3 and earlier
ID : VideoLAN-SA-1601
CVE reference : CVE-2016-5108
</pre>
<h2>Details</h2>
<p>A remote user can create a specially crafted QuickTime IMA file that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a buffer overflow in DecodeAdpcmImaQT() in 'modules/codec/adpcm.c'.</p>
<h2>Impact</h2>
<p>If successful, a malicious third party could trigger either a crash of VLC or an arbitratry code execution with the privileges of the target user.</p>
<h2>Threat mitigation</h2>
<p>Exploitation of those issues requires the user to explicitly open a specially crafted file or stream.</p>
<p>ASLR and DEP help reduce exposure, but may be bypassed.</p>
<h2>Workarounds</h2>
<p>The user should refrain from opening files from untrusted third parties
or accessing untrusted remote sites (or disable the VLC browser plugins),
until the patch is applied.
</p>
<h2>Solution</h2>
<p>VLC media player <b>2.2.4</b> addresses the issue.
