CVE-2008-0486 xine-lib / mplayer: array indexing vulnerability in FLAC parsing code
Last modified: 2008-04-24 07:47:05 EDT
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.
Patch in mplayer SVN:
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.
