This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200609-08
(xine-lib: Buffer overflows)

xine-lib contains buffer overflows in the processing of AVI.
Additionally, xine-lib is vulnerable to a buffer overflow in the HTTP
plugin (xineplug_inp_http.so) via a long reply from an HTTP server.

Impact :

An attacker could trigger the buffer overflow vulnerabilities by
enticing a user to load a specially crafted AVI file in xine. This
might result in the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the
user running xine. Additionally, a remote HTTP server serving a xine
client a specially crafted reply could crash xine and possibly execute
arbitrary code.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
