<p>
Stefan Cornelius and Reimar Doffinger of Secunia Research discovered
several boundary errors in the functions cddb_query_parse(),
cddb_parse_matches_list() and cddb_read_parse(), each allowing for a
stack-based buffer overflow.

<impact type="normal">
<p>
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted file
with malicious CDDB entries, possibly resulting in the execution of
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running MPlayer.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All MPlayer users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-video/mplayer-1.0.20070622&quot;</code>
