Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.55984
Category:Mandrake Local Security Checks
Title:Mandrake Security Advisory MDKSA-2005:230 (mplayer)
Summary:Mandrake Security Advisory MDKSA-2005:230 (mplayer)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to mplayer
announced via advisory MDKSA-2005:230.

Simon Kilvington discovered a vulnerability in FFmpeg libavcodec,
which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial
of Service) and potentially to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in the
avcodec_default_get_buffer() function of utils.c in libavcodec.
This can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow when a
specially-crafted 1x1 .png file containing a palette is read.

Mplayer is built with a private copy of ffmpeg containing this
same code.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this problem.

Affected: 2006.0, Corporate 3.0

Solution:
To upgrade automatically use MandrakeUpdate or urpmi. The verification
of md5 checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you.
