<impact type="normal">
<p>
An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by enticing a user into
loading a specially crafted stream with xine or an application using
xine-lib. This can lead to a Denial of Service and possibly the
execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running the
application.
</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-r3&quot;</code>
</resolution>
