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-200801-12
(xine-lib: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)

Luigi Auriemma reported that xine-lib does not properly check
boundaries when processing SDP attributes of RTSP streams, leading to
heap-based buffer overflows.

Impact :

An attacker could entice a user to play specially crafted RTSP video
streams 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.

All xine-lib users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/xine-lib-1.1.9.1'

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
