======================================================================
1) Affected Software

flv2mpeg4  v1.1

Prior versions may also be affected.

======================================================================
2) Background

flv2mpeg4 allows you convert a Flash Video / FLV file (YouTube's videos,etc)
to MPEG4 (AVI/MOV/MP4/MP3/3GP) file online. It is using a compressed domain
transcoder technology (outline in Japanese). It converts FLV to MPEG4 faster
and less lossy than a typical transcoder.

======================================================================
3) Problem Description

As we can see flv2mpeg4 receives 2 parameters the first is expected to be
a flv file and second mpeg4 (AVI/MOV/MP4/MP3/3GP), the problem is a clerical
error in the parameters or a parameter poorly trained, causing the
application to stop running unexpectedly

for example:

Anon@localhost % flv2mpeg4 Video.flv Video.mpg
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

in this mpg extension is incorrect

Anon@localhost % flv2mpeg4 Video.flv `perl -e '{print "A"x4000,".avi"}'`
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Although the extension is correct in this case, does not allow such a long
file name

======================================================================
4) Severity

Rating: Very low risk
Impact: Denial of service
Where: Local

======================================================================
5) Solution

Run flv2mpeg4 done correctly with the parameters in order

======================================================================
6) Time Table

23/12/2008 - Vendor response.
08/03/2009 - Public disclosure.
