The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200510-08
(xine-lib: Format string vulnerability)
Ulf Harnhammar discovered a format string bug in the routines
handling CDDB server response contents.
An attacker could submit malicious information about an audio CD
to a public CDDB server (or impersonate a public CDDB server). When the
victim plays this CD on a multimedia frontend relying on xine-lib, it
could end up executing arbitrary code.
There is no known workaround at this time.
