  • libvdpau-1.1.1
    af517f56 · Bump version to 1.1.1 ·
    Release: libvdpau-1.1.1
    libvdpau versions 1.1 and earlier, when used in setuid or setgid applications,
    contain vulnerabilities related to environment variable handling that could
    allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code or overwrite arbitrary files.  See
    CVE-2015-5198, CVE-2015-5199, and CVE-2015-5200 for more details.
    This release uses the secure_getenv() function, when available, to fix these
    problems. On platforms where secure_getenv() is not available, libvdpau will use
    a fallback implementation.
    If you use the NVIDIA .run installer packages, please see for additional information.
    This release also adds tracing of HEVC picture structures to libvdpau_trace.
  • libvdpau-1.1
    0962da95 · Bump version to 1.1 ·
    This release fixes a bug in the new VdpPictureInfoHEVC structure: the
    column_width_minus1 and row_height_minus1 arrays had the wrong dimensions.  To
    avoid the incorrect structure being used, the profile numbers for the HEVC
    profiles have been changed.  Please use the new profiles rather than the ones
    from libvdpau 1.0.
