The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200803-16
(MPlayer: Multiple buffer overflows)
The following errors have been discovered in MPlayer:
Felipe Manzano and Anibal Sacco (Core Security Technologies)
reported an array indexing error in the file libmpdemux/demux_mov.c
when parsing MOV file headers (CVE-2008-0485).
and Alfredo Ortega (Core Security Technologies) reported a boundary
error in the file libmpdemux/demux_audio.c when parsing FLAC comments
Adam Bozanich (Mu Security) reported boundary
errors in the cddb_parse_matches_list() and cddb_query_parse()
functions in the file stream_cddb.c when parsing CDDB album titles
(CVE-2008-0629) and in the url_scape_string() function in the file
stream/url.c when parsing URLS (CVE-2008-0630).
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted file,
possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running MPlayer.
There is no known workaround at this time.
