<impact type="normal">
<p>
An attacker could submit malicious information about an audio CD
to a public CDDB server (or impersonate a public CDDB server). When the
victim plays this CD on a multimedia frontend relying on xine-lib, it
could end up executing arbitrary code.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All xine-lib users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose media-libs/xine-lib</code>
</resolution>
