Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : xine-lib (MDKSA-2004:105)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

A number of string overflows were discovered in the xine-lib program,
some of which can be used for remote buffer overflow exploits that
lead to the execution of arbitrary code with the permissions of the
user running a xine-lib-based media application. xine-lib versions
1-rc2 through, and including, 1-rc5 are vulnerable to these problems.

As well, a heap overflow was found in the DVD subpicture decoder of
xine-lib; this vulnerability is also remotely exploitable. All
versions of xine-lib prior to and including 0.5.2 through, and
including, 1-rc5 are vulnerable to this problem.

Patches from the xine-lib team have been backported and applied to the
program to solve these problems.
