xine-lib is vulnerable to multiple buffer overflows when processing media streams.
|Package||media-libs/xine-lib on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 1.1.13|
|Unaffected versions||>= 1.1.13|
xine-lib is the core library package for the xine media player, and other players such as Amarok, Codeine/Dragon Player and Kaffeine.
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in xine-lib:
A remote attacker could entice a user to play a specially crafted video file or stream with a player using xine-lib, potentially resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the player.
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-1.1.13"
