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.
