CVE number = CVE-2024-0444

CVSS Score = 7.5

This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on affected installations of GStreamer.

Interaction with this library is required to exploit this vulnerability but attack vectors may vary depending on the implementation.

The specific flaw exists within the parsing of tile list data within AV1-encoded video files.
