ID: 200604-15

Synopsis

Format string vulnerabilities in xine-ui may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

Background

xine-ui is a skin-based user interface for xine. xine is a free multimedia player. It plays CDs, DVDs, and VCDs, and can also decode other common multimedia formats.

Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Ludwig Nussel discovered that xine-ui incorrectly implements formatted printing.

Impact

By constructing a malicious playlist file, a remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user running the application.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All xine-ui users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-video/xine-ui-0.99.4-r5"
