Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:065
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : kaffeine
Date : April 5, 2006
Affected: 2006.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Marcus Meissner discovered Kaffeine contains an unchecked buffer while
creating HTTP request headers for fetching remote RAM playlists, which
allows overflowing a heap allocated buffer. As a result, remotely
supplied RAM playlists can be used to execute arbitrary code on the
client machine.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
