Package        : xine-ui
Vulnerability  : format string
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-2230

Several format string vulnerabilities have been discovered in xine-ui,
the user interface of the xine video player, which may cause a denial
of service.

The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by these problems.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.99.3-1sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your xine-ui package.
