Mandriva: Updated libmms packages fix buffer overflow vulnerability
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake 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. The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
