Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:068: 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-2006:068 (mplayer).



Multiple integer overflows in MPlayer 1.0pre7try2 permit remote attackers to
cause a denial of service and trigger heap-based buffer overflows via (1) a
certain ASF file handled by asfheader.c that causes the asf_descrambling
function to be passed a negative integer after the conversion from a char to an
int or (2) an AVI file with a crafted wLongsPerEntry or nEntriesInUse value in
the indx chunk, which is handled in aviheader.c. The updated packages have been
patched to prevent this problem.
