Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : mplayer (MDVSA-2008:219)
High Nessus Plugin ID 37535
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA vulnerability that was discovered in xine-lib that allowed remote RTSP servers to execute arbitrary code via a large streamid SDP parameter also affects MPlayer (CVE-2008-0073).
Several integer overflows were discovered by Felipe Andres Manzano in MPlayer's Real video stream demuxing code. These vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to cause a crash or possibly execute arbitrary code by supplying a malicious crafted video file (CVE-2008-3827).
The updated packages have been patched to fix these issues. Note that CVE-2008-3827 was already corrected in the Mandriva Linux 2009 packages.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
