Debian Security Advisory DSA-3899-1                   security@debian.org

Package        : vlc
CVE ID         : CVE-2017-8310 CVE-2017-8311 CVE-2017-8312 CVE-2017-8313

Several vulnerabilities have been found in VLC, the VideoLAN project's
media player. Processing malformed subtitles or movie files could lead
to denial of service and potentially the execution of arbitrary code.

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed
in version 2.2.6-1~deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your vlc packages.
