Package : mplayer
Vulnerability : buffer overflows
Problem type : local(remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-0485 CVE-2008-0486 CVE-2008-0629 CVE-2008-0630

Several buffer overflows have been discovered in the MPlayer movie player,
which might lead to the execution of arbitrary code. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2008-0485

Felipe Manzano and Anibal Sacco discovered a buffer overflow in
the demuxer for MOV files.

CVE-2008-0486

Reimar Doeffinger discovered a buffer overflow in the FLAC header
parsing.

CVE-2008-0629

Adam Bozanich discovered a buffer overflow in the CDDB access code.

CVE-2008-0630

Adam Bozanich discovered a buffer overflow in URL parsing.


For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0~rc1-12etch2.

The old stable distribution (sarge) doesn't contain mplayer.

We recommend that you upgrade your mplayer packages.
