            Bug ID: 1159
           Summary: hang and CPU 100% in infinite loop
           Product: Libav
           Version: git HEAD
          Hardware: X86
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: ---
         Component: libavformat
          Assignee: bugzilla at libav.org

On git HEAD of libav:
There is an infinite loop and application hang in mpc8_read_header function
(libavformat/mpc8.c), which can be triggered by the POC with the command:
avconv -i $POC -f /dev/null

It's stuck all the time, and it takes up 100% of the CPU. This may cause DoS

The location of the loop code is as follows:
203 static int mpc8_read_header(AVFormatContext *s)
204 {

217     while(!pb->eof_reached){
218         pos = avio_tell(pb);
219         mpc8_get_chunk_header(pb, &tag, &size);
220         if(tag == TAG_STREAMHDR)
221             break;
222         mpc8_handle_chunk(s, tag, pos, size);
223     }

263 }

The back trace is as follows´╝Ü
