Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities in xine-lib might result in the remote
execution of arbitrary code.

Background
==========

xine-lib is the core library package for the xine media player, and
other players such as Amarok, Codeine/Dragon Player and Kaffeine.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /  Vulnerable  /                  Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  media-libs/xine-lib     < 1.1.16.3                    >= 1.1.16.3

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilites have been reported in xine-lib. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact
======

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 application.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All xine-lib users should upgrade to an unaffected version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/xine-lib-1.1.16.3"

NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since April 10, 2009. It is likely that your system is
already no longer affected by this issue.
