Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2005-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
USN-230-1 fixed a vulnerability in the ffmpeg library. The Xine
library contains a copy of the ffmpeg code, thus it is vulnerable to
the same flaw.
For reference, this is the original advisory :
Simon Kilvington discovered a buffer overflow in the
avcodec_default_get_buffer() function of the ffmpeg library. By
tricking an user into opening a malicious movie which contains
specially crafted PNG images, this could be exploited to execute
arbitrary code with the user's privileges.
Update the affected libxine-dev, libxine1 and / or libxine1c2
Risk factor :
High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
Family: Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Nessus Plugin ID: 20774 ()
