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-200704-09
(xine-lib: Heap-based buffer overflow)

xine-lib does not check boundaries on data being read into buffers from
DMO video files in code that is shared with MPlayer
(DMO_VideoDecoder.c).

Impact :

An attacker could entice a user to play a specially crafted DMO video
file with a player using xine-lib, potentially resulting in the
execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the
player.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
