Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200409-30 (xine-lib: Multiple vulnerabilities)

xine-lib contains two stack-based overflows and one heap-based     overflow. In the code reading VCD disc labels, the ISO disc label is     copied into an unprotected stack buffer of fixed size. Also, there is a     buffer overflow in the code that parses subtitles and prepares them for     display (XSA-2004-4). Finally, xine-lib contains a heap-based overflow     in the DVD sub-picture decoder (XSA-2004-5).
(Please note that the VCD MRL issue mentioned in XSA-2004-4 was fixed     with GLSA 200408-18.)   Impact :

With carefully-crafted VCDs, DVDs, MPEGs or subtitles, an attacker may     cause xine-lib to execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the     user.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
