xine-ui is a skin-based user interface for xine. xine is a free
multimedia player. It plays CDs, DVDs, and VCDs, and can also decode
other common multimedia formats.
Ludwig Nussel discovered that xine-ui incorrectly implements
formatted printing.
<impact type="normal">
By constructing a malicious playlist file, a remote attacker could
exploit these vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary code with the rights
of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All xine-ui users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-video/xine-ui-0.99.4-r5&quot;</code>
