Loop with Unreachable Exit Condition ('Infinite Loop')
In the ihevcd_parse_slice_header function of ihevcd_parse_slice_header.c a slice address of zero after the first slice could result in an infinite loop. This could lead to a remote denial of service of a critical system process with no additional execution privileges needed. User interaction is not needed for exploitation. Product: Android.

CWE-835 - Loop with Unreachable Exit Condition
Loops with multiple exits and flags detract from the quality of an application. They tend to make control structures difficult to understand, and introduce the risk of non-termination and other structural problems. The vulnerability “loop with unreachable exit condition” enables attackers to exploit this flaw, leading to denial of service.
