A format string vulnerability was found in mpv, potentially resulting in arbitrary code execution.
|Package||media-video/mpv on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 0.33.1|
|Unaffected versions||>= 0.33.1|
Video player based on MPlayer/mplayer2.
mpv uses untrusted input within format strings.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted m3u playlist file using mpv, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All mpv users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-video/mpv-0.33.1"
