The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
This updates xine-lib to the upstream 1.1.16 release. This fixes
several bugs, including the security issues CVE-2008-5234 vector 1,
CVE-2008-5236, CVE-2008-5237, CVE-2008-5239, CVE-2008-5240 vectors 3 &
4 and CVE-2008-5243. See
d=9655 for the full list of changes. In addition, the Fedora xine-lib
package now includes the demuxers for the MPEG container format, which
are not patent- encumbered. (The decoders for actual MPEG video and
audio data are still excluded due to software patents.)
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
