MDKSA-2006:176: 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-2006:176 (xine-lib).

Xine-lib uses an embedded copy of ffmpeg and as such has been updated
to address the following issue: Multiple buffer overflows in
libavcodec in ffmpeg before 0.4.9_p20060530 permit remote attackers to
cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code via
multiple unspecified vectors in (1) dtsdec.c, (2) vorbis.c, (3) rm.c,
(4)sierravmd.c, (5) smacker.c, (6) tta.c, (7) 4xm.c, (8) alac.c, (9)
cook.c, (10)shorten.c, (11) smacker.c, (12) snow.c, and (13) tta.c.
NOTE: it is likely that this is a different vulnerability than
CVE-2005-4048 and CVE-2006-2802.
Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
