xine-lib is vulnerable to a buffer overflow in the Real Media input plugin, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
|Package||media-libs/xine-lib on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 1.1.2-r3|
|Unaffected versions||>= 1.1.2-r3|
xine is a portable and reusable multimedia playback engine. xine-lib is xine's core engine.
A possible buffer overflow has been reported in the Real Media input plugin.
An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by enticing a user into loading a specially crafted stream with xine or an application using xine-lib. This can lead to a Denial of Service and possibly the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All xine-lib users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/xine-lib-1.1.2-r3"
