Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-657-1 xine-lib

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

A heap overflow has been discovered in the DVD subpicture decoder of

view a malicious network stream, this is remotely exploitable.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.8-2woody2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1-rc6a-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your libxine packages.
