Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : mplayer (MDVSA-2008:196)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 36349


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


Uncontrolled array index in the sdpplin_parse function in stream/realrtsp/sdpplin.c in MPlayer 1.0 rc2 allows remote attackers to overwrite memory and execute arbitrary code via a large streamid SDP parameter.

The updated packages have been patched to fix this issue.


Update the affected packages.
