Subject: Re: CVE Request: mplayer RDT parsing integer underlow

Please use CVE-2009-5027



----- Original Message -----
> Hi,
> Please assign a CVE for this issue from 2009. From [1]:
> "Function real_get_rdt_chunk() calls rtsp_read_data() to read RDT
> (Real Data Transport) chunks headers from the network and after that
> it
> will parse them. A controled variable is used to allocate a buffer
> and
> later passed on to the rtsp_read_data() function in order to specify
> the
> length of an RDT chunk data to read from the network. An integer
> underflow can be triggered when parsing a malformed RDT header chunk,
> a remote attacker can exploit it to execute arbitrary code in the
> context of the application."
