Package        : vlc
CVE ID         : CVE-2013-1868 CVE-2013-1954 CVE-2013-4388

Multiple buffer overflows have been found in the VideoLAN media player.
Processing malformed subtitles or movie files could lead to denial of
service and potentially the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0.3-5+deb7u1.

For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.1.0-1.

version 2.1.0-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your vlc packages.
