xine is a high performance, portable and reusable multimedia playback
engine. xine-lib is xine's core engine.

<description>
<p>
xine-lib contains buffer overflows in the processing of AVI.
Additionally, xine-lib is vulnerable to a buffer overflow in the HTTP
plugin (xineplug_inp_http.so) via a long reply from an HTTP server.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
An attacker could trigger the buffer overflow vulnerabilities by
enticing a user to load a specially crafted AVI file in xine. This
might result in the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the
user running xine. Additionally, a remote HTTP server serving a xine
client a specially crafted reply could crash xine and possibly execute
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 &quot;&gt;=media-libs/xine-lib-1.1.2-r2&quot;</code>
</resolution>
