Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : xine-lib (MDVSA-2008:178)

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 :

Alin Rad Pop found an array index vulnerability in the SDP parser of
xine-lib. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a
malicious RTSP stream, a remote attacker could possibly execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user using the program
(CVE-2008-0073).

The ASF demuxer in xine-lib did not properly check the length of ASF
headers. If a user was tricked into opening a crafted ASF file, a
remote attacker could possibly cause a denial of service or execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user using the program
(CVE-2008-1110).

The Matroska demuxer in xine-lib did not properly verify frame sizes,
which could possibly lead to the execution of arbitrary code if a user
opened a crafted ASF file (CVE-2008-1161).

Luigi Auriemma found multiple integer overflows in xine-lib. If a user
was tricked into opening a crafted FLV, MOV, RM, MVE, MKV, or CAK
file, a remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user using the program (CVE-2008-1482).

Guido Landi found A stack-based buffer overflow in xine-lib that could
allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service (crash) and
potentially execute arbitrary code via a long NSF title
(CVE-2008-1878).

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
