VideoLAN VLC Buffer Overflow Subtitle Exploit Update 2

VLC is able to handle the subtitles automatically in a very simple way,it just checks the presence of ssa files with the same name of the loaded video and a possible subtitles folder.The functions which handle the MicroDvd, SSA and Vplayer subtitle formats are vulnerable to some stack based buffer-overflow vulnerabilities which can allow an attacker to execute malicious code. This update adds support for Opera and Mozilla Firefox.
