FreeBSD : mplayer -- Multiple integer overflows (c7526a14-c4dc-11da-9699-00123ffe8333)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 21511


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


Secunia reports :

The vulnerabilities are caused due to integer overflow errors in 'libmpdemux/asfheader.c' within the handling of an ASF file, and in 'libmpdemux/aviheader.c' when parsing the 'indx' chunk in an AVI file.
This can be exploited to cause heap-based buffer overflows via a malicious ASF file, or via a AVI file with specially crafted 'wLongsPerEntry' and 'nEntriesInUse' values in the 'indx' chunk.


Update the affected packages.
