xine-lib (SSA:2008-111-01)
Posted on: 04/22/2008 10:25 AM

New xine-lib packages are available for Slackware 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 11.0, 12.0, and -current to fix security issues.

An overflow was found in the Speex decoder that could lead to a crash or
possible execution of arbitrary code. Xine-lib lt;= 1.1.12 was also found to be vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow in the NES demuxer (thanks to milw0rm.com).

More details about the first issue may be found in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-1686

Here are the details from the Slackware 12.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/xine-lib-1.1.11.1-i686-3_slack12.0.tgz:
Recompiled, with --without-speex (we didn't ship the speex library in
Slackware anyway, but for reference this issue would be CVE-2008-1686),
and with --disable-nosefart (the recently reported as insecurely
demuxed NSF format). As before in -2, this package fixes the two
regressions mentioned in the release notes for xine-lib-1.1.12:
http://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.php?release_id=592185group_id=9655
(* Security fix *)

HINT: Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try. This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project! :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
