CVE-2018-6360

CVE: CVE-2018-6360
Published: 2018-01-28T02:29Z
Vendor: mpv
Products: mpv
Versions: 0.28.0,
Vendor: debian
Products: debian_linux
Versions: 9.0,
Description Language: en
Description: mpv through 0.28.0 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted web site, because it reads HTML documents containing VIDEO elements, and accepts arbitrary URLs in a src attribute without a protocol whitelist in player/lua/ytdl_hook.lua. For example, an av://lavfi:ladspa=file= URL signifies that the product should call dlopen on a shared object file located at an arbitrary local pathname. The issue exists because the product does not consider that youtube-dl can provide a potentially unsafe URL.
