xine is a portable and reusable multimedia playback engine. xine-lib is xine's core engine.
A possible buffer overflow has been reported in the Real Media input plugin.
An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by enticing a user into loading a specially crafted stream with xine or an application using xine-lib. This can lead to a Denial of Service and possibly the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All xine-lib users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/xine-lib-1.1.2-r3"
