<h1>Security Advisory 1902</h1>
<pre>
Summary : Multiple vulnerabilities fixed in VLC media player
Date : August 2019
Affected versions : VLC media player 3.0.7.1 and earlier for most issues
ID : VideoLAN-SA-1902
CVE references : CVE-2019-13602, CVE-2019-13962, CVE-2019-14437, CVE-2019-14438, CVE-2019-14498, CVE-2019-14533, CVE-2019-14534, CVE-2019-14535, CVE-2019-14776, CVE-2019-14777, CVE-2019-14778, CVE-2019-14970

<h2>Details</h2>
<p>A remote user could create a specifically crafted file that could trigger issues ranging from buffer overflows to division by zero.</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>
<p>While these issues in themselves are most likely to just crash the player, we can't exclude that they could be combined to leak user informations or
remotely execute code. ASLR and DEP help reduce the likelyness of code execution, but may be bypassed.</p>
<p>We have not seen exploits performing code execution through these vulnerabilities</p>
<br />
<p>While CVE CVE-2019-13602 &amp; CVE-2019-13962 mention a base score of 8.8 and 9.8 respectively, the VideoLAN team believes this severity is highly exagerated; in our
opinion, a base score of 4.3 (AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:L) would be more reasonable.</p>
<p>CVE-2019-13962 only affects VLC 3.0.2 to 3.0.7.1
<h2>Threat mitigation</h2>
<p>Exploitation of those issues requires the user to explicitly open a specially crafted file or stream.</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>3.0.8</b> addresses the issues.
