Vulnerability Assessment Details

FreeBSD Ports: libxine < 1.0r5_2

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the libxine package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host has an old version of libxine installed.

libxine is a set of libraries for the Xine multimedia player. There is a buffer
overflow condition in the remote version of this library which may permit
a possible hacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote host when a libxine-enabled
application processes a malformed vcd:// input source indentifier.

To exploit this flaw, a possible hacker would need to send a malicious playlist file
to a Xine user on the remote host, containing a malformed vcd:// link.
