A Secunia Advisory reports:
Federico L. Bossi Bonin has discovered a weakness in xine-lib, which can be exploited by malicious people to crash certain applications on a user's system. The weakness is cause due to a heap corruption within the "xineplug_inp_http.so" plugin when handling an overly large reply from the HTTP server. This can be exploited to crash an application that uses the plugin (e.g. gxine).
