MDKSA-2006:048: mplayer

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the mplayer package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:048 (mplayer).



Multiple integer overflows in (1) the new_demux_packet function in demuxer.h
and (2) the demux_asf_read_packet function in demux_asf.c in MPlayer
1.0pre7try2 and earlier permit remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via an
ASF file with a large packet length value. The updated packages have been
patched to prevent this problem.
