Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: mpv: Format string vulnerability (GLSA 202107-46)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: 2021-07-20
Bug(s): #780474
ID: 202107-46


A format string vulnerability was found in mpv, potentially
resulting in arbitrary code execution.


Video player based on MPlayer/mplayer2.

Affected Packages

Package: media-video/mpv
Vulnerable: < 0.33.1
Unaffected: >= 0.33.1
Architectures: All supported architectures


mpv uses untrusted input within format strings.


A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted m3u
playlist file using mpv, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary
code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.


There is no known workaround at this time.


All mpv users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-video/mpv-0.33.1"
