openSUSE-SU-2017:2595-1: moderate: Security update for vlc
openSUSE Security Update: Security update for vlc
______________________________________________________________________________

Announcement ID: openSUSE-SU-2017:2595-1
Rating: moderate
References: #1041907 #1057736
Cross-References: CVE-2017-9300
Affected Products:
openSUSE Leap 42.3
______________________________________________________________________________

An update that solves one vulnerability and has one errata
is now available.

Description:

This update for vlc fixes several issues.

This security issue was fixed:

- CVE-2017-9300: Heap corruption allowed remote attackers to cause a
denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via a
crafted FLAC file (bsc#1041907).

These non-security issues were fixed:

- Stop depending on libkde4-devel: It's only used to find the install path
for kde4, but configure falls back to the correct default for openSUSE
anyway (boo#1057736).
- Disable vnc access module


Patch Instructions:

To install this openSUSE Security Update use YaST online_update.

- openSUSE Leap 42.3:
