Ubuntu 5.04 / 5.10 / 6.06 LTS : libmms, xine-lib vulnerabilities (USN-315-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2006-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

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

Description :

Matthias Hopf discovered several buffer overflows in libmms. By
tricking a user into opening a specially crafted remote multimedia
stream with an application using libmms, a remote attacker could
exploit this to execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.

The Xine library contains an embedded copy of libmms, and thus needs
the same security update.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.1

Family: Ubuntu Local Security Checks
