There are multiple overflows in xine-lib.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pardus Linux Security Advisory 2009-14            security@pardus.org.tr
------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Date: 2009-01-29
  Severity: 3
      Type: Local
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Summary
=======

There are multiple overflows in xine-lib. Please update to  the  latest 
version. 


Description
===========

1) Heap-based overflow allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code
by using Quicktime media files holding crafted metadata (CVE-2008-5234). 



2) Heap-based overflow allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code
by using either crafted Matroska or Real media files (CVE-2008-5236). 



3) Failure on manipulation of either MNG or Quicktime  files  can  lead 
remote attackers to cause a denial of service by  using  crafted  files 
(CVE-2008-5237). 



4) Multiple heap-based overflow on input plugins (http, net, smb,  dvd, 
dvb, rtsp, rtp, pvr, pnm, file,  gnome_vfs,  mms)  allow  attackers  to 
execute arbitrary code by handling that input  channels.  Further  this 
problem  can even  lead  attackers  to   cause   denial   of   service  
(CVE-2008-5239). 



5) Heap-based overflow allows attackers to execute  arbitrary  code  by 
using crafted Matroska media files  (MATROSKA_ID_TR_CODECPRIVATE  track 
entry element). Further a failure  on  handling  of  Real  media  files 
(CONT_TAG 

header) can lead to a denial of service attack (CVE-2008-5240). 



6) Integer underflow allows remote attackers to cause denial of service 
by using Quicktime media files (CVE-2008-5241). 



7) Failure on manipulation of Real media files can lead remote attackers
to cause a denial of service by indexing an  allocated  buffer  with  a 
certain input value in a crafted file (CVE-2008-5243). 



8) Vulnerabilities of unknown impact - possibly buffer overflow - caused
by a condition of video frame  preallocation  before  ascertaining  the 
required length in V4L video input plugin (CVE-2008-5245). 



9) Heap-based overflow allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code
by using crafted media files. This vulnerability is in the manipulation 
of ID3 audio  file  data  tagging  mainly  used  in  MP3  file  formats 
(CVE-2008-5246). 


Affected packages:

  Pardus 2008:
    xine-lib, all before 1.1.16.1-55-11


Resolution
==========

There are update(s) for xine-lib.  You  can  update  them  via  Package 
Manager or with a single command from console: 

    pisi up xine-lib
