Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:117-1
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : libmms
Date : July 12, 2006
Affected: 2006.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Stack-based buffer overflow in MiMMS 0.0.9 allows remote attackers to cause
a denial of service (application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code
via the (1) send_command, (2) string_utf16, (3) get_data, and (4)
get_media_packet functions, and possibly other functions. Libmms uses the
same vulnerable code.

Update:

The previous update for libmms had an incorrect/incomplete patch. This
update includes a more complete fix for the issue.
