Mandriva: Updated xine-lib packages fix vulnerability in Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake A vulnerability in the Speex library was found where it did not properly validate input values read from the Speex files headers. An attacker could create a malicious Speex file that would crash an application or potentially allow the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the application calling the Speex library (CVE-2008-1686).

 Date    : June 26, 2008
 Affected: 2008.0, 2008.1

 Problem Description:
 
 A vulnerability in the Speex library was found where it did not
 properly validate input values read from the Speex files headers.
 An attacker could create a malicious Speex file that would crash an
 application or potentially allow the execution of arbitrary code
 with the privileges of the application calling the Speex library
 (CVE-2008-1686).
 
 Xine-lib is similarly affected by this issue.
 
 As well, the previous version of xine as provided in Mandriva Linux
 2008.1 would crash when playing matroska files, and a regression was
 introduced that prevented Amarok from playing m4a files.
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
