FreeBSD : xine-lib arbitrary file overwrite (e50b04e8-9c55-11d8-9366-0020ed76ef5a)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 37040


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


From the xinehq advisory :

By opening a malicious MRL in any xine-lib based media player, an attacker can write arbitrary content to an arbitrary file, only restricted by the permissions of the user running the application.

The flaw is a result of a feature that allows MRLs (media resource locator URIs) to specify arbitrary configuration options.


Update the affected package.
