FreeBSD : mplayer heap overflow in http requests (5e7f58c3-b3f8-4258-aeb8-795e5e940ff8)
High Nessus Plugin ID 12581
The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
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.
