Package : xine-lib
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem-Type : local(remote)

It was discovered that the Xine multimedia library performs insufficient

code through a buffer overflow.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.1-1sarge5.

For the upcoming stable distribution (etch) this problem has been
fixed in version 1.1.2+dfsg-2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.1.2+dfsg-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your xine-lib packages.
