Fedora 9 : xine-lib-1.1.16-1.fc9.1 (2009-0542)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 35399


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This updates xine-lib to the upstream 1.1.16 release. This fixes several bugs, including the security issues CVE-2008-5234 vector 1, CVE-2008-5236, CVE-2008-5237, CVE-2008-5239, CVE-2008-5240 vectors 3 & 4 and CVE-2008-5243. See http://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.php?release_id=652075&group_i d=9655 for the full list of changes. In addition, the Fedora xine-lib package now includes the demuxers for the MPEG container format, which are not patent- encumbered. (The decoders for actual MPEG video and audio data are still excluded due to software patents.)

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.
