Fedora 8 : xine-lib-1.1.15-1.fc8 (2008-7572)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 34136


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This release fixes multiple bugs and security issues: - DoS via corrupted Ogg files (CVE-2008-3231) - multiple possible buffer overflows detailed in oCERT-2008-008 For more details, see:
http://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.php?release_id=619869&group_i d=9655 http://www.ocert.org/advisories/ocert-2008-008.html NOTE: A coordinated release with 3rd-party repos was not possible, so this update may result in dependency issues with currently-installed xine-lib-extras-* rpms. This temporary problem will be rectified asap.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected xine-lib package.
