can you please rerun your tests using this branch: /srv/scratch/packages/ffmpeg/upstream/ffmpeg-0.5 I'm working on getting an 0.5.1 point release released RSN which will get into squeeze. Fixing these security bugs there is a higher priority for me than fixing 0.svn20080206-18. Unfortunately I'm very busy this week and cannot promise to work on that until next weekend. > reference  may be useful to track down the other needed patches; or > it may be easier to just upgrade to a new svn (however, the patches > still need to be determined for stable). I don't think its really worth tracking dos-only fixes. FFmpeg is very performance tuned, and AFAIUI upstream does consider dos-only fixes only on a best efford basis as long as it doesn't impair performance. crashers that allow remote code execution however are another issue that need to be investigated. -- Gruesse/greetings, Reinhard Tartler, KeyID 945348A4 _______________________________________________ pkg-multimedia-maintainers mailing list email@example.com http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/pkg-multimedia-maintainers
