GLSA-200607-07 : xine-lib: Buffer overflow
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 22083
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200607-07 (xine-lib: Buffer overflow)
There is a stack based overflow in the libmms library included with xine-lib which can be triggered by malicious use of the send_command, string_utf16, get_data and get_media_packet functions.
A remote attacker could design a malicious media file that would trigger the overflow, potentially resulting in the execution of 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-1.1.2-r2'
