Package        : xine-lib
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem-Type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2004-1379
BugTraq ID     : 11205

A heap overflow has been discovered in the DVD subpicture decoder of
xine-lib.  An attacker could cause arbitrary code to be executed on
the victims host by supplying a malicious MPEG.  By tricking users to
view a malicious network stream, this is remotely exploitable.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.8-2woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1-rc6a-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libxine packages.
