library.

<description>
<p>
KF of Secure Network Operations has discovered an overflow that occurs
during the Content-Type header processing of Kaffeine. The vulnerable
code in Kaffeine is reused from gxine, making gxine vulnerable as well.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
An attacker could create a specially-crafted Content-type header from a
malicious HTTP server, and crash a user's instance of Kaffeine or
gxine, potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Kaffeine users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-video/kaffeine-0.4.3b-r1&quot;</code>
<p>
All gxine users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-video/gxine-0.3.3-r1&quot;</code>
