oval:org.mitre.oval:def:6443

The oggplay_data_handle_theora_frame function in media/liboggplay/src/liboggplay/oggplay_data.c in liboggplay as used in Mozilla Firefox 3.5.x before 3.5.4 attempts to reuse an earlier frame data structure upon encountering a decoding error for the first frame which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted .ogg video file.
