Ubuntu 5.10 / 6.06 LTS / 6.10 : xmms vulnerabilities (USN-445-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2007-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Sven Krewitt of Secunia Research discovered that XMMS did not
correctly handle BMP images when loading GUI skins. If a user were
tricked into loading a specially crafted skin, a remote attacker could
execute arbitrary code with user privileges.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected xmms and / or xmms-dev packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 9.3
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
