Title: mpv: Format string vulnerability (GLSA 202107-46)
A format string vulnerability was found in mpv, potentially
resulting in arbitrary code execution.
Video player based on MPlayer/mplayer2.
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"
