Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: xine-lib: Buffer overflow (GLSA 200612-02)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: December 09, 2006
Bug(s): #156645
ID: 200612-02

Synopsis

xine-lib is vulnerable to a buffer overflow in the Real Media input plugin, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

Background

xine is a portable and reusable multimedia playback engine. xine-lib is xine's core engine.

Affected Packages

Package: media-libs/xine-lib
Vulnerable: < 1.1.2-r3
Unaffected: >= 1.1.2-r3
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

A possible buffer overflow has been reported in the Real Media input plugin.

Impact

An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by enticing a user into loading a specially crafted stream with xine or an application using xine-lib. This can lead to a Denial of Service and possibly the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running the application.

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-r3"
