Synopsis
=======
MPlayer contains multiple integer overflows that may lead to a
heap-based buffer overflow.

Background
=========
MPlayer is a media player that supports many multimedia file types.

Affected packages
================
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package                  /    Vulnerable    /          Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  media-video/mplayer         < 1.0.20060415        >= 1.0.20060415

    -------------------------------------------------------------------

Description
==========
Xfocus Team discovered multiple integer overflows that may lead to a
heap-based buffer overflow.

Impact
=====
An attacker could entice a user to play a specially crafted multimedia
file, potentially resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running the application.

Workaround
=========
There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=========
All MPlayer users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-video/mplayer-1.0.20060415"

All MPlayer binary users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-video/mplayer-bin-1.0.20060415"
