Subject: [PATCH] Prevent integer truncation in 'tx3g' processing
Whenever the length of an atom in an MPEG4 file is set to 1, a 64-bit length is
read from the atom's data and stored in the variable 'chunk_size'. A value
larger than SIZE_MAX could satisfy the check added in the previous patch and,
because the new[] operator only accepts 32-bit lengths on 32-bit platforms,
integer truncation can occurr in the resulting allocation. Reject chunk_size
values larger than SIZE_MAX (in addition to the original check) to prevent
under-sized allocation.
