MPlayer 'demux_mov.c' Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

MPlayer is prone to a remote code-execution vulnerability because it fails to sanitize certain 'MOV' file tags before using them to index heap memory.

An attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code, which can result in the complete compromise of the computer. Failed exploit attempts will result in a denial-of-service condition.

This issue affects MPlayer 1.0rc2; other versions may also be affected.
