No System Group - Advisory #2 - 01/09/03

Program:  MPlayer - The Movie Player for Linux 
Homepage:  http://www.mplayerhq.hu
Vulnerable Versions: Mplayer v0.91 and prior
Risk: Low / Medium
Impact: Stack Buffer Overflow
-------------------------------------------------

NOTE: The program 'gmplayer' isn't SUID by default.
A SUID MPlayer can be easily tricked to - like - overwrite /etc/shadow with
a new one, using very simple commandline options. One should *NEVER* set
MPlayer SUID root.
