<title>xine-lib: Buffer overflow</title>
A buffer overflow has been found in the libmms library shipped with
xine-lib, potentially resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.

<package name="media-libs/xine-lib" auto="yes" arch="*">

<vulnerable range="lt">1.1.2-r2</vulnerable>
xine-lib is the core library of xine, a multimedia player.
There is a stack based overflow in the libmms library included with
xine-lib which can be triggered by malicious use of the send_command,
string_utf16, get_data and get_media_packet functions.
<impact type="normal">
A remote attacker could design a malicious media file that would
trigger the overflow, potentially resulting in the execution of
arbitrary code.
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-1.1.2-r2&quot;</code>
