Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: xine-lib: Two heap overflow vulnerabilities (GLSA 200504-27)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: April 26, 2005
Bug(s): #89976
ID: 200504-27

Synopsis


Two vulnerabilities have been found in xine-lib which could lead to the
remote execution of arbitrary code.


Background


xine-lib is a multimedia library which can be utilized to create
multimedia frontends.


Affected Packages

Package: media-libs/xine-lib
Vulnerable: < 1.0-r2
Unaffected: >= 1.0-r2
Unaffected: >= 1_rc6-r2 < 12
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


Heap overflows have been found in the code handling RealMedia RTSP
and Microsoft Media Services streams over TCP (MMST).


Impact


By setting up a malicious server and enticing a user to use its
streaming data, a remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code
on the client computer with the permissions of the user running any
multimedia frontend making use of the xine-lib library.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All xine-lib users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose media-libs/xine-lib
