<title>xine-ui: Format string vulnerabilities</title>
xine-ui improperly handles format strings, possibly allowing for the
execution of arbitrary code.

<package name="media-video/xine-ui" auto="yes" arch="*">

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.
Due to the improper handling and use of format strings, the
errors_create_window() function in errors.c does not safely write data
to memory.
<impact type="normal">
An attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted media file
with xine-ui, and possibly execute arbitrary code.
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-0.99.5_pre20060716&quot;</code>
