DeleteBitBuffer in libbitbuf/bitbuffer.c in mp4tools aacplusenc 0.17.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (invalid memory write, SEGV on unknown address 0x000000000030, and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted .wav file, aka a NULL pointer dereference.

Weakness

A NULL pointer dereference occurs when the application dereferences a pointer that it expects to be valid, but is NULL, typically causing a crash or exit.
