GLSA-200510-08 : xine-lib: Format string vulnerability
High Nessus Plugin ID 19978
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200510-08 (xine-lib: Format string vulnerability)
Ulf Harnhammar discovered a format string bug in the routines handling CDDB server response contents.
An attacker could submit malicious information about an audio CD to a public CDDB server (or impersonate a public CDDB server). When the victim plays this CD on a multimedia frontend relying on xine-lib, it could end up executing arbitrary code.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll xine-lib users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose media-libs/xine-lib
