Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200609-08 (xine-lib: Buffer overflows)

xine-lib contains buffer overflows in the processing of AVI.
Additionally, xine-lib is vulnerable to a buffer overflow in the HTTP     plugin (xineplug_inp_http.so) via a long reply from an HTTP server.

Impact :

An attacker could trigger the buffer overflow vulnerabilities by     enticing a user to load a specially crafted AVI file in xine. This     might result in the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the     user running xine. Additionally, a remote HTTP server serving a xine     client a specially crafted reply could crash xine and possibly execute     arbitrary code.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
