Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:108: 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-2006:108 (xine-lib).

A buffer overflow in the HTTP Plugin (xineplug_inp_http.so) for xine-lib
1.1.1 permits remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application
crash) via a long reply from an HTTP server, as demonstrated using gxine
0.5.6. (CVE-2006-2802)
In addition, a possible buffer overflow exists in the AVI demuxer,
similar in nature to CVE-2006-1502 for MPlayer. The Corporate 3 release
of xine-lib does not have this issue.
The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
