Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : xine-lib (MDKSA-2007:062)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 24832
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThe DS_VideoDecoder_Open function in DirectShow/DS_VideoDecoder.c in xine-lib does not set the biSize before use in a memcpy, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a buffer overflow and possibly execute arbitrary code.
Updated packages have been patched to address this issue.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
