Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:094: 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-2005:094 (xine-lib).



Two buffer overflow vulnerabilities were discovered in the MMS and Real RTSP
stream handlers in the Xine libraries. If a possible hacker can trick a user to
connect to a malicious MMS or RTSP video/audio stream source with any
application using this library, they could crash the client and possibly even
execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user running the player
program.

The updated packages have been patched to correct these problems.
