Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

The DS_VideoDecoder_Open function in loader/dshow/DS_VideoDecoder.c in
MPlayer 1.0rc1 and earlier does not set the biSize before use in a
memcpy, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a buffer
overflow and possibly execute arbitrary code.

Updated packages have been patched to address this issue.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.8
