Debian Security Advisory DSA 657-1 security@debian.org

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : xine-lib
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem-Type : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2004-1379
BugTraq ID : 11205

A heap overflow has been discovered in the DVD subpicture decoder of xine-lib. An attacker could cause arbitrary code to be executed on the victims host by supplying a malicious MPEG. By tricking users to view a malicious network stream, this is remotely exploitable.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 0.9.8-2woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 1-rc6a-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libxine packages.
