Critical Nessus Plugin ID 19013


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


iDEFENSE and the MPlayer Team have found multiple vulnerabilities in MPlayer :

- Potential heap overflow in Real RTSP streaming code

- Potential stack overflow in MMST streaming code

- Multiple buffer overflows in BMP demuxer

- Potential heap overflow in pnm streaming code

- Potential buffer overflow in mp3lib

These vulnerabilities could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code as the user running MPlayer. The problem in the pnm streaming code also affects xine.


Update the affected packages.
