'boxSize' is zero so 'boxSize / 4 - 1' wraps around and we loop forever.

Don't read outside of the "ftyp" box.

This matches the spec at https://mimesniff.spec.whatwg.org/#signature-for-mp4 much more closely (with the exception of us also looking for "iso[m2]").

[Security approval request comment]
How easily could an exploit be constructed based on the patch?

Unsure, seems hard to do much useful with beyond a DoS.

Do comments in the patch, the check-in comment, or tests included in the patch paint a bulls-eye on the security problem?

The comment on the newly added test describes the bug.

Which older supported branches are affected by this flaw?

Introduced in Firefox 18.

If not all supported branches, which bug introduced the flaw?

Bug 567077.

Do you have backports for the affected branches? If not, how different, hard to create, and risky will they be?

The code hasn't changed much over time, so backporting is trivial.

How likely is this patch to cause regressions; how much testing does it need?

Missed a question:

(In reply to Matthew Gregan [:kinetik] from comment #3)
> How likely is this patch to cause regressions; how much testing does it need?

Pretty low, it's a simple change.  Worst case is we reject some playing files that we might have attempted to play before.

Is this really just a DOS? If so, I'll rate it as sec-low and clear the sec-approval? flag as you can check sec-low bugs into trunk without approval.

I think so.  Maybe if you were clever you could use the bug to find a (fixed, by the code) pattern elsewhere in memory, but that'd have to be combined with some other exploit to be useful, I think.

Clearing sec-approval?. As a sec-low, this can just go into trunk. If you'd like it to be taken on branches, please nominate it for those.

Matthew, I think the uplift request for beta is necessary too, right?

Spoke to bajaj on IRC about this. Given where we are in the v1.4/v2.0 release cycles, we aren't going to take a sec-low without good reason. That said, we'd happily take this as a ride-along fix for v2.1 by virtue of it landing on Beta34 :)

Leaving the esr31 decision to the security team, though.

Per comment 13 do you have any thoughts on this for ESR31?

> Per comment 13 do you have any thoughts on this for ESR31?

As a sec-low, we wouldn't take it unless we had a good reason to think it was especially necessary.
