Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : xine-lib (MDVSA-2009:299)

High Nessus Plugin ID 42810


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Vulnerabilities have been discovered and corrected in xine-lib :

- Integer overflow in the qt_error parse_trak_atom function in demuxers/demux_qt.c in xine-lib and earlier allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a Quicktime movie file with a large count value in an STTS atom, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2009-1274)

- Integer overflow in the 4xm demuxer (demuxers/demux_4xm.c) in xine-lib allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a 4X movie file with a large current_track value, a similar issue to CVE-2009-0385 (CVE-2009-0698)

This update fixes these issues.


Update the affected packages.
