Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:121: 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-2006:121 (xine-lib).

Stack-based buffer overflow in MiMMS 0.0.9 permits remote attackers to cause

a denial of service (application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code

via the (1) send_command, (2) string_utf16, (3) get_data, and (4)

get_media_packet functions, and possibly other functions. Xine-lib contains

an embedded copy of the same vulnerable code.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
