AP4_AtomFactory::CreateAtomFromStream in Core/Ap4AtomFactory.cpp in Bento4 version 1.5.0-617 has missing NULL checks, leading to a NULL pointer dereference, segmentation fault, and application crash in AP4_Atom::SetType in Core/Ap4Atom.h.

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.
