Debian Security Advisory DSA 1005-1                                   Moritz Muehlenhoff
March 16th, 2006

Package        : xine-lib
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem-Type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2005-4048
Debian Bug     : 342208

Simon Kilvington discovered that specially crafted PNG images can trigger
a heap overflow in libavcodec, the multimedia library of ffmpeg, which may
lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
xine-lib includes a local copy of libavcodec.

The old stable distribution (woody) isn't affected by this problem.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.1-1sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.1-1.5.

We recommend that you upgrade your xine-lib package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
