Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : xine-lib (MDKSA-2006:108)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 21752
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA buffer overflow in the HTTP Plugin (xineplug_inp_http.so) for xine-lib 1.1.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a long reply from an HTTP server, as demonstrated using gxine 0.5.6. (CVE-2006-2802)
In addition, a possible buffer overflow exists in the AVI demuxer, similar in nature to CVE-2006-1502 for MPlayer. The Corporate 3 release of xine-lib does not have this issue.
The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
