<impact type="normal">
<p>
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.

<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.

<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose media-libs/xine-lib</code>
