FreeBSD : libxine -- multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities (1b043693-8617-11db-93b2-000e35248ad7)

Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

The libxine development team reports that several vulnerabilities had
been found in the libxine library. The first vulnerability is caused
by improper checking of the src/input/libreal/real.c
'real_parse_sdp()' function. A remote attacker could exploit this by
tricking an user to connect to a preparated server potentially causing
a buffer overflow. Another buffer overflow had been found in the
libmms library, potentially allowing a remote attacker to cause a
denial of service vulnerability, and possible remote code execution
through the following functions: send_command, string_utf16, get_data
and get_media_packets. Other functions might be affected as well.
