Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

A remotely exploitable heap buffer overflow vulnerability was found in
MPlayer's URL decoding code. If an attacker can cause MPlayer to visit
a specially crafted URL, arbitrary code execution with the privileges
of the user running MPlayer may occur. A `visit' might be caused by
social engineering, or a malicious web server could use HTTP redirects
which MPlayer would then process.
