Loop with Unreachable Exit Condition ('Infinite Loop')
In mpc8_read_header in libavformat/mpc8.c in Libav 12.3, an input file can result in an avio_seek infinite loop and hang, with 100% CPU consumption. Attackers could leverage this vulnerability to cause a denial of service via a crafted file.
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.
