This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

The DMO_VideoDecoder_Open function in dmo/DMO_VideoDecoder.c in
xine-lib does not set the biSize before use in a memcpy, which allows
user-assisted remote attackers to cause a buffer overflow and possibly
execute arbitrary code.

Updated packages have been patched to address this issue.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.6
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:H/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
