Version 2.0.1 of the open source VLC Media Player was recently released.

"According to VideoLAN developer Jean-Baptiste Kempf, the maintenance update to VLC 2.0 'Twoflower' includes fixes for more than 110 bugs and closes two security holes that could be exploited by an attacker to compromise a victim's system," The H Security reports.

"The update addresses a stack overflow in MMS support as well as a heap-based buffer overflow in Real RTSP support which, its developers say, could lead to arbitrary code execution on most systems," the article states.
