    Package        : xine-lib
    Vulnerability  : several
    Problem-Type   : local(remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-4799 CVE-2006-4800
    Debian Bug     : 369876
    Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Xine multimedia
    library, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code. The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
        The XFocus Security Team discovered that insufficient validiation of
        AVI headers may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
        Michael Niedermayer discovered that a buffer overflow in the 4XM
        codec may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.0.1-1sarge4.
    For the upcoming stable distribution (etch) these problems have been
    fixed in version 1.1.2-1.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.1.2-1.
    We recommend that you upgrade your xine-lib packages.
