Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : xine-lib (MDVSA-2008:020)
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 36277
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionTwo vulnerabilities discovered in xine-lib allow remote execution of arbitrary code :
Heap-based buffer overflow in the rmff_dump_cont function in input/libreal/rmff.c in xine-lib 1.1.9 and earlier allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via the SDP Abstract attribute, related to the rmff_dump_header function and related to disregarding the max field. (CVE-2008-0225)
Multiple heap-based buffer overflows in the rmff_dump_cont function in input/libreal/rmff.c in xine-lib 1.1.9 allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via the SDP (1) Title, (2) Author, or (3) Copyright attribute, related to the rmff_dump_header function, different vectors than CVE-2008-0225. (CVE-2008-0238)
Besides those security issues, the xine-lib provided in Mandriva Linux 2008.0 and 2007.1 did not automatically use Real binary codecs, when the user had them installed in /usr/lib64/real on x86_64 architecture.
Also, xine-lib of Mandriva Linux 2007.1 did not automatically use the Real codecs from /usr/lib/RealPlayer10GOLD/codecs, which is provided by RealPlayer package of Mandriva Powerpack editions.
The updated packages fix these issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
