PACKAGE   : mplayer
SUMMARY   : Remote buffer overflow vulnerability
DATE      : 2003-10-06 12:37:00
ID        : CLA-2003:760

DESCRIPTION
 MPlayer is a multimedia player that supports several video and audio
 codecs.
 
 Hernán Otero found[2] a remote buffer overflow vulnerability[3] in a
 function which parses ASX streaming headers. An attacker can exploit
 this vulnerability to potentially execute arbitrary code with the
 privileges of the user who is running mplayer by using a specially
 crafted ASF file (which can be served remotely).
 
 The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
 assigned the name CAN-2003-0835[3] to this issue.


SOLUTION
 All mplayer users should upgrade.
