An issue was discovered in Bento4 1.5.1.0. A memory allocation failure is unhandled in Core/Ap4SdpAtom.cpp and leads to crashes. When parsing input video, the program allocates a new buffer to parse an atom in the stream. The unhandled memory allocation failure causes a direct copy to a NULL pointer.

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.
