<title>xine-lib, FFmpeg: Heap-based buffer overflow</title>
xine-lib and FFmpeg are vulnerable to a buffer overflow that may be
exploited by attackers to execute arbitrary code.

xine is a GPL high-performance, portable and reusable multimedia
playback engine. xine-lib is xine's core engine. FFmpeg is a very fast
video and audio converter and is used in xine-lib.
Simon Kilvington has reported a vulnerability in FFmpeg
libavcodec. The flaw is due to a buffer overflow error in the
"avcodec_default_get_buffer()" function. This function doesn't properly
handle specially crafted PNG files as a result of a heap overflow.
<impact type="normal">
A remote attacker could entice a user to run an FFmpeg based
application on a maliciously crafted PNG file, resulting in the
execution of arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running
the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All xine-lib users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-libs/xine-lib-1.1.1-r3&quot;</code>
All FFmpeg users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-video/ffmpeg-0.4.9_p20051216&quot;</code>
