Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:105: xine-lib

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the xine-lib package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:105 (xine-lib).


A number of string overflows were discovered in the xine-lib program, some of
which can be used for remote buffer overflow exploits that lead to the execution
of arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running a xine-lib-based
media application. xine-lib versions 1-rc2 through, and including, 1-rc5 are
vulnerable to these problems.
As well, a heap overflow was found in the DVD subpicture decoder of xine-lib

this vulnerability is also remotely exploitable. All versions of xine-lib prior
to and including 0.5.2 through, and including, 1-rc5 are vulnerable to this
problem.
Patches from the xine-lib team have been backported and applied to the program
to solve these problems.
