===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-42-1           December 20, 2004
xine-lib vulnerabilities
https://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.php?group_id=9655&release_id=290099
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)

The following packages are affected:

libxine1

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 1-rc5-1ubuntu2.1.  In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Several buffer overflows have been discovered in xine-lib, the
video/audio codec library for Xine frontends (xine-ui, totem-xine,
kaffeine, and others). If an attacker tricked a user into loading a
malicious RTSP stream or a stream with specially crafted AIFF audio or
PNM image data, they could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with
the privileges of the user opening the audio/video file.
