Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:065: kaffeine

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the kaffeine package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:065 (kaffeine).



Marcus Meissner discovered Kaffeine contains an unchecked buffer while creating
HTTP request headers for fetching remote RAM playlists, which permits
overflowing a heap allocated buffer. As a result, remotely supplied RAM
playlists can be used to execute arbitrary code on the client machine. Updated
packages have been patched to correct this issue.
