Description

The DMO_VideoDecoder_Open function in loader/dmo/DMO_VideoDecoder.c in MPlayer 1.0rc1 and earlier, as used in xine-lib, does not set the biSize before use in a memcpy, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a buffer overflow and possibly execute arbitrary code, a different vulnerability than CVE-2007-1387.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-suse-release
  • suse-upgrade-xine-lib
  • suse-upgrade-xine-lib-32bit
  • suse-upgrade-xine-lib-64bit
