Problem description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been identified and fixed in mplayer:

FFmpeg 0.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (hang)
via a crafted file that triggers an infinite loop. (CVE-2009-4636)

flicvideo.c in libavcodec 0.6 and earlier in FFmpeg, as used in MPlayer
and other products, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code
via a crafted flic file, related to an arbitrary offset dereference
vulnerability. (CVE-2010-3429)

libavcodec/vorbis_dec.c in the Vorbis decoder in FFmpeg 0.6.1
and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) via a crafted .ogg file, related to the
vorbis_floor0_decode function. (CVE-2010-4704)

Fix heap corruption crashes (CVE-2011-0722)

Fix invalid reads in VC-1 decoding (CVE-2011-0723)

And several additional vulnerabilites originally discovered by Google
Chrome developers were also fixed with this advisory.

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
