Debian: New mplayer packages fix integer overflows

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. Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.

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.
