    /* Read the metadata */
    es_format_Init( &fmt, AUDIO_ES, VLC_FOURCC( 'T', 'T', 'A', '1' ) );
    fmt.audio.i_channels = GetWLE( &p_header[6] );
    fmt.audio.i_bitspersample = GetWLE( &p_header[8] );
[1] fmt.audio.i_rate = GetDWLE( &p_header[10] );

    p_sys->i_datalength = GetDWLE( &p_header[14] );
    p_sys->i_framelength = TTA_FRAMETIME * fmt.audio.i_rate;

[2] p_sys->i_totalframes = p_sys->i_datalength / p_sys->i_framelength +
                       ((p_sys->i_datalength % p_sys->i_framelength) ? 1 : 0);
    p_sys->i_currentframe = 0;

[3] i_seektable_size = sizeof(uint32_t)*p_sys->i_totalframes;
    p_seektable = (uint8_t *)malloc( i_seektable_size );
    stream_Read( p_demux->s, p_seektable, i_seektable_size ); 
    p_sys->pi_seektable = (uint32_t *)malloc(i_seektable_size);

    for( i = 0; i < p_sys->i_totalframes; i++ )
[4]      p_sys->pi_seektable[i] = GetDWLE( &p_seektable[i*4] );


[1] - we can set i_rate to 1
[2] - i_framelength = 1 (look for constant definition, it's ~1), 
	so i_totalframes = i_datalength
[3] - because we can set i_datalength to 2^30 and bacause 
	i_totalframes = i_datalength, multiplication will overflow
[4] - i_totalframes is positive (highest bit not set), so this loop will 
	spin 2^30 times, overwriting everything with data from the heap. 
	unfortunate thing is we have little control over what is written.
