MDKSA-2006:117-1: libmms Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the libmms package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:117-1 (libmms).
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 previous update for libmms had an incorrect/incomplete patch. This
update includes a more complete fix for the issue.
