Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : xine-lib (MDVSA-2009:299)

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 :

Vulnerabilities have been discovered and corrected in xine-lib :

- Integer overflow in the qt_error parse_trak_atom
function in demuxers/demux_qt.c in xine-lib 1.1.16.2 and
earlier allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary
code via a Quicktime movie file with a large count value
in an STTS atom, which triggers a heap-based buffer
overflow (CVE-2009-1274)

- Integer overflow in the 4xm demuxer
(demuxers/demux_4xm.c) in xine-lib 1.1.16.1 allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash)
and possibly execute arbitrary code via a 4X movie file
with a large current_track value, a similar issue to
CVE-2009-0385 (CVE-2009-0698)

This update fixes these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
