Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : xine-lib (MDKSA-2005:094)
High Nessus Plugin ID 18412
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionTwo buffer overflow vulnerabilities were discovered in the MMS and Real RTSP stream handlers in the Xine libraries. If an attacker can trick a user to connect to a malicious MMS or RTSP video/audio stream source with any application using this library, they could crash the client and possibly even execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the player program.
The updated packages have been patched to correct these problems.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
