Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

From the xinehq advisory :

By opening a malicious MRL in any xine-lib based media player, an
attacker can write arbitrary content to an arbitrary file, only
restricted by the permissions of the user running the application.

The flaw is a result of a feature that allows MRLs (media resource
locator URIs) to specify arbitrary configuration options.
