Debian Security Advisory DSA 915-1                     security@debian.org

Package        : helix-player
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2005-2629
BugTraq ID     : 15381

An integer overflow has been discovered in helix-player, the helix
audio and video player.  This flaw could allow a remote attacker to
run arbitrary code on a victims computer by supplying a specially
crafted network resource.

This vulnerability is fixed by version 1.0.6-1 in unstable.
Helix-player is not currently in the testing distribution.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain a helix-player
package.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0.4-1sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0.6-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your helix-player package.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
