MDKSA-2006:068: mplayer Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the mplayer package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:068 (mplayer).
Multiple integer overflows in MPlayer 1.0pre7try2 allow remote attackers to
cause a denial of service and trigger heap-based buffer overflows via (1) a
certain ASF file handled by asfheader.c that causes the asf_descrambling
function to be passed a negative integer after the conversion from a char to an
int or (2) an AVI file with a crafted wLongsPerEntry or nEntriesInUse value in
the indx chunk, which is handled in aviheader.c. The updated packages have been
patched to prevent this problem.
