Debian Security Advisory DSA 477-1 security@debian.org

Package : xine-ui
Vulnerability : insecure temporary file creation
Problem-Type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2004-0372
Bugtraq ID : 9939

Shaun Colley discovered a problem in xine-ui, the xine video player user interface. A script contained in the package to possibly remedy a problem or report a bug does not create temporary files in a secure fashion. This could allow a local attacker to overwrite files with the privileges of the user invoking xine.

This update also removes the bug reporting facility since bug reports can't be processed upstream anymore.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 0.9.8-5.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your xine-ui package.
