Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:115 (mplayer).



Two heap overflows were discovered in mplayer's code handling the RealMedia

vulnerabilities could permit for a malicious server to execute arbitrary code on
the client computer with the permissions of the user running MPlayer.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
