USN-392-1: xine-lib vulnerability

4 December 2006

xine-lib vulnerability



A buffer overflow was discovered in the Real Media input plugin in
xine-lib. If a user were tricked into loading a specially crafted
stream from a malicious server, the attacker could execute arbitrary
code with the user's privileges.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.10
  • libxine1 - 1.1.2+repacked1-0ubuntu3.2
Ubuntu 6.06
  • libxine-main1 - 1.1.1+ubuntu2-7.5
Ubuntu 5.10
  • libxine1c2 - 1.0.1-1ubuntu10.7

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
