    Felipe Andres Manzano discovered that mplayer, a multimedia player, is vulnerable to several integer overflows in the Real video stream demuxing code. These flaws could allow an attacker to cause a denial of service (a crash) or potentially the execution of arbitrary code by supplying a maliciously crafted video file.

    Felipe Andres Manzano discovered that mplayer, a multimedia player, is
    vulnerable to several integer overflows in the Real video stream
    demuxing code.  These flaws could allow an attacker to cause a denial
    of service (a crash) or potentially the execution of arbitrary code by
    supplying a maliciously crafted video file.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.0~rc1-12etch5.  For he unstable distribution (sid), these
    problems have been fixed in version 1.0~rc2-18.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mplayer packages.
