The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200808-01
(xine-lib: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in xine-lib:
Alin Rad Pop of Secunia reported an array indexing vulnerability in the
sdpplin_parse() function in the file input/libreal/sdpplin.c when
processing streams from RTSP servers that contain a large 'streamid'
SDP parameter (CVE-2008-0073).
Luigi Auriemma reported multiple integer overflows that result in
heap-based buffer overflows when processing '.FLV', '.MOV' '.RM',
'.MVE', '.MKV', and '.CAK' files (CVE-2008-1482).
Guido Landi reported a stack-based buffer overflow in the
demux_nsf_send_chunk() function when handling titles within NES Music
(.NSF) files (CVE-2008-1878).
A remote attacker could entice a user to play a specially crafted video
file or stream with a player using xine-lib, potentially resulting in
the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running
There is no known workaround at this time.
