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

Package : libmms
Date : July 6, 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.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
