Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : mplayer (MDKSA-2007:055)

High Nessus Plugin ID 24805


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


The DMO_VideoDecoder_Open function in loader/dmo/DMO_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.


Update the affected packages.
