Mandriva: Updated mplayer packages to address buffer overflow vulnerability Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake 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.
