    Stefan Cornelius and Reimar Doeffinger discovered that the MPlayer movie
    player performs insufficient boundary checks when accessing CDDB data,
    which might lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    The oldstable distribution (sarge) doesn't include MPlayer packages.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0~rc1-12etch1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0~rc1-14.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mplayer package.
