for the remote execution of arbitrary code.

MPlayer is a media player incuding support for a wide range of audio
and video formats.
The following errors have been discovered in MPlayer:
<li>Felipe Manzano and Anibal Sacco (Core Security Technologies)
reported an array indexing error in the file libmpdemux/demux_mov.c
when parsing MOV file headers (CVE-2008-0485).</li>
<li>Damian Frizza
and Alfredo Ortega (Core Security Technologies) reported a boundary
error in the file libmpdemux/demux_audio.c when parsing FLAC comments
<li>Adam Bozanich (Mu Security) reported boundary
errors in the cddb_parse_matches_list() and cddb_query_parse()
functions in the file stream_cddb.c when parsing CDDB album titles
(CVE-2008-0629) and in the url_scape_string() function in the file
stream/url.c when parsing URLS (CVE-2008-0630).</li>
<impact type="normal">
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted file,
possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running MPlayer.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All MPlayer users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-video/mplayer-1.0_rc2_p25993&quot;</code>
