The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200707-07
(MPlayer: Multiple buffer overflows)
Stefan Cornelius and Reimar Doffinger of Secunia Research discovered
several boundary errors in the functions cddb_query_parse(),
cddb_parse_matches_list() and cddb_read_parse(), each allowing for a
stack-based buffer overflow.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted file
with malicious CDDB entries, possibly resulting in the execution of
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running MPlayer.
There is no known workaround at this time.
