Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : xine-lib (MDVSA-2008:020)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Two vulnerabilities discovered in xine-lib allow remote execution of
arbitrary code :

Heap-based buffer overflow in the rmff_dump_cont function in
input/libreal/rmff.c in xine-lib 1.1.9 and earlier allows remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code via the SDP Abstract attribute,
related to the rmff_dump_header function and related to disregarding
the max field. (CVE-2008-0225)

Multiple heap-based buffer overflows in the rmff_dump_cont function in
input/libreal/rmff.c in xine-lib 1.1.9 allow remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code via the SDP (1) Title, (2) Author, or (3)
Copyright attribute, related to the rmff_dump_header function,
different vectors than CVE-2008-0225. (CVE-2008-0238)

Besides those security issues, the xine-lib provided in Mandriva Linux
2008.0 and 2007.1 did not automatically use Real binary codecs, when
the user had them installed in /usr/lib64/real on x86_64 architecture.
Also, xine-lib of Mandriva Linux 2007.1 did not automatically use the
Real codecs from /usr/lib/RealPlayer10GOLD/codecs, which is provided
by RealPlayer package of Mandriva Powerpack editions.

The updated packages fix these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
