Mandrake: Updated xine packages fix Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Joseph Shakespeare   
Mandrake iDefense discovered that the PNA_TAG handling code in pnm_get_chunk() does not check if the input size is larger than the buffer size (CAN-2004-1187). As well, they discovered that in this same function, a negative value could be given to an unsigned variable that specifies the read length of input data (CAN-2004-1188). Ariel Berkman discovered that xine-lib reads specific input data into an array without checking the input size making it vulnerable to a buffer overflow problem (CAN-2004-1300).

                 Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package name:           xine-lib
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2005:011
 Date:                   January 19th, 2005

 Affected versions:	 10.0, 10.1
 ______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 iDefense discovered that the PNA_TAG handling code in pnm_get_chunk()
 does not check if the input size is larger than the buffer size
 (CAN-2004-1187).  As well, they discovered that in this same function,
 a negative value could be given to an unsigned variable that specifies
 the read length of input data (CAN-2004-1188).
 
 Ariel Berkman discovered that xine-lib reads specific input data into
 an array without checking the input size making it vulnerable to a
 buffer overflow problem (CAN-2004-1300).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to prevent these problems.
