xine-lib is a multimedia library which can be utilized to create
multimedia frontends.
Heap overflows have been found in the code handling RealMedia RTSP
and Microsoft Media Services streams over TCP (MMST).
<impact type="normal">
By setting up a malicious server and enticing a user to use its
streaming data, a remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code
on the client computer with the permissions of the user running any
multimedia frontend making use of the xine-lib library.
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</code>
