Kaffeine and gxine are graphical front-ends for xine-lib multimedia
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.
<impact type="normal">
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.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Kaffeine users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-video/kaffeine-0.4.3b-r1&quot;</code>
All gxine users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-video/gxine-0.3.3-r1&quot;</code>
