Mandriva: Updated xine-lib packages to address buffer overflow vulnerability Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake The DMO_VideoDecoder_Open function in dmo/DMO_VideoDecoder.c in xine-lib does not set the biSize before use in a memcpy, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a buffer overflow and possibly execute arbitrary code. Updated packages have been patched to address this issue.
