This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Multiple buffer overflows were fixed in the XINE decoder libraries,
which could be used by attackers to crash players or potentially
execute code.

- Buffer overflow in ffmpeg for xine-lib before 1.1.2
might allow context-dependent attackers to execute
arbitrary code via a crafted AVI file and 'bad indexes'.

- Multiple buffer overflows in libavcodec in ffmpeg before
0.4.9_p20060530 allow remote attackers to cause a denial
of service or possibly execute arbitrary code via
multiple unspecified vectors in (1) dtsdec.c, (2)
vorbis.c, (3) rm.c, (4) sierravmd.c, (5) smacker.c, (6)
tta.c, (7) 4xm.c, (8) alac.c, (9) cook.c, (10)
shorten.c, (11) smacker.c, (12) snow.c, and (13) tta.c.
