|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: xine-lib: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 200808-01)
Date: August 06, 2008
Bug(s): #213039, #214270, #218059
xine-lib is vulnerable to multiple buffer overflows when processing media streams.
xine-lib is the core library package for the xine media player, and other players such as Amarok, Codeine/Dragon Player and Kaffeine.
Vulnerable: < 1.1.13
Unaffected: >= 1.1.13
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in xine-lib:
- Alin Rad Pop of Secunia reported an array indexing vulnerability in the sdpplin_parse() function in the file input/libreal/sdpplin.c when processing streams from RTSP servers that contain a large "streamid" SDP parameter (CVE-2008-0073).
- Luigi Auriemma reported multiple integer overflows that result in heap-based buffer overflows when processing ".FLV", ".MOV" ".RM", ".MVE", ".MKV", and ".CAK" files (CVE-2008-1482).
- Guido Landi reported a stack-based buffer overflow in the demux_nsf_send_chunk() function when handling titles within NES Music (.NSF) files (CVE-2008-1878).
A remote attacker could entice a user to play a specially crafted video file or stream with a player using xine-lib, potentially resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the player.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All xine-lib users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/xine-lib-1.1.13"
