Date: May 30, 2007
Updated: October 12, 2007

ID: 200705-21

Synopsis


Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in MPlayer, each one could lead to
the execution of arbitrary code.


Background


MPlayer is a media player incuding support for a wide range of audio
and video formats.

Unaffected: < 1.0
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


A buffer overflow has been reported in the DMO_VideoDecoder_Open()
function in file loader/dmo/DMO_VideoDecoder.c. Another buffer overflow
has been reported in the DS_VideoDecoder_Open() function in file
loader/dshow/DS_VideoDecoder.c.


Impact


A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted video
file, potentially resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running MPlayer.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.
