Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : xine-lib (MDVSA-2008:046-1)

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

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

An array index vulnerability found in the FLAC audio demuxer might
allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted FLAC
tag, which triggers a buffer overflow. Although originally an MPlayer
issue, it also affects xine-lib due to code similarity.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this issue.

Update :

The previous update used a bad patch which made Amarok interface very
unresponsive while playing FLAC files. This new update fixes the
security issue with a better patch.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 9.3
Public Exploit Available : true

Family: Mandriva Local Security Checks
