Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: July 20, 2006
Bug(s): #139319
ID: 200607-07

Synopsis

A buffer overflow has been found in the libmms library shipped with xine-lib, potentially resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.

Background

xine-lib is the core library of xine, a multimedia player.

Affected Packages

Package: media-libs/xine-lib
Vulnerable: < 1.1.2-r2
Unaffected: >= 1.1.2-r2
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

There is a stack based overflow in the libmms library included with xine-lib which can be triggered by malicious use of the send_command, string_utf16, get_data and get_media_packet functions.

Impact

A remote attacker could design a malicious media file that would trigger the overflow, potentially resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.

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-1.1.2-r2"
