Description Lars Hartmann 2008-02-06 09:34:48 UTC
Array index vulnerability in libmpdemux/demux_audio.c in MPlayer 1.0rc2 and SVN before r25917, and possibly earlier versions, as used in Xine-lib 1.1.10, might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted FLAC tag, which triggers a buffer overflow.
Comment 1 Lars Hartmann 2008-02-06 09:35:12 UTC
maintainers - please advise
Comment 2 Alexis Ballier gentoo-dev 2008-02-09 10:48:42 UTC
xine-lib- in the tree should fix this:
* Security fixes:
  - Array index vulnerability which may allow remote attackers to execute
    arbitrary code via a crafted FLAC tag, causing a stack buffer overflow.
* Fix a RealPlayer codec detection bug.
* Improve detection of MP3 streams with ID3v2 tags. Don't trust the tag
