Mandrake Format string vulnerability in the errors_create_window function in errors.c in xine-ui allows attackers to execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors.
 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDKSA-2007:027
 Package : xine-ui
 Date    : January 26, 2007
 Affected: 2007.0, Corporate 3.0
 Problem Description:
 Format string vulnerability in the errors_create_window function in
 errors.c in xine-ui allows attackers to execute arbitrary code via
 unknown vectors. (CVE-2007-0254)

 XINE 0.99.4 allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of
 service (application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a
 certain M3U file that contains a long #EXTINF line and contains format
 string specifiers in an invalid udp:// URI, possibly a variant of
 CVE-2007-0017. (CVE-2007-0255)

 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
