The MPlayer multimedia player suffers from a vulnerability which could
result in arbitrary code execution and at the least, in unexpected
process termination. Three integer underflows located in the Real
demuxer code can be used to exploit a heap overflow, a specific video
file can be crafted in order to make the stream_read function reading
or writing arbitrary amounts of memory.
