Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:061
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : mplayer
Date : March 13, 2007
Affected: 2007.0, Corporate 3.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

The DS_VideoDecoder_Open function in loader/dshow/DS_VideoDecoder.c
in MPlayer 1.0rc1 and earlier does not set the biSize before use in a
memcpy, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a buffer
overflow and possibly execute arbitrary code.

Updated packages have been patched to address this issue.
