VideoLAN Security Advisory

June 18, 2007

If you use VideoLAN’s VLC Media Player (and who doesn’t?) you should probably upgrade to the latest version.  Here’s the info from their site:

“2007-06-17

VLC media player versions 0.8.6b and lower suffer from a security vulnerability in the CDDA, Vorbis, Theora and SAP plugins. More technical details are available in our advisory.
An updated release of VLC is available which includes a few other fixes as well. The full list of changes can be found here.
We strongly recommend all users to update to this new version.”
