Apr 06, 2004, 00:59 (0 Talkback[s])

Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory


Package name: mplayer
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2004:026
Date: April 5th, 2004
Affected versions: 10.0, 9.2


Problem Description:

A remotely exploitable buffer overflow vulnerability was found in MPlayer. A malicious host can craft a harmful HTTP header ("Location:"), and trick MPlayer into executing arbitrary code upon parsing that header.

The updated packages contain a patch from the MPlayer development team to correct the problem.
