A vulnerability has been reported in FFmpeg, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error within the "str_read_packet()" function in libavformat/psxstr.c. This can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted STR file.
Solution: Fixed in the SVN repository at revision 13993.
