Description Tomas Hoger 2008-02-05 07:32:17 EST
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2008-0486 to the following vulnerability:

Array index vulnerability in libmpdemux/demux_audio.c in MPlayer
1.0rc2 and SVN before r25917, and possibly earlier versions, as used
in Xine-lib 1.1.10, might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary
code via a crafted FLAC tag, which triggers a buffer overflow.

Comment 1 Tomas Hoger 2008-02-05 07:40:09 EST
Patch in mplayer SVN:

http://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer/trunk/libmpdemux/demux_audio.c?r1=25911&r2=25917

For xine-lib, affected code seems to live in open_flac_file() in
src/demuxers/demux_flac.c .  This does not seem to be fixed in xine-lib's HG yet.
