The ff_vc1_mc_4mv_chroma4 function in libavcodec/vc1_mc.c in Libav 12.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (segmentation fault and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted file.

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.
