 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                       MDKSA-2006:117-1
 Package : libmms
 Date    : July 12, 2006
 Affected: 2006.0
 Problem Description:
 Stack-based buffer overflow in MiMMS 0.0.9 allows remote attackers to cause 
 a denial of service (application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code 
 via the (1) send_command, (2) string_utf16, (3) get_data, and (4) 
 get_media_packet functions, and possibly other functions. Libmms uses the
 same vulnerable code.

 update includes a more complete fix for the issue.
