Description

A number of string overflows were discovered in the xine-lib program, some of which can be used for remote buffer overflow exploits that lead to the execution of arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running a xine-lib-based media application. xine-lib versions 1-rc2 through, and including, 1-rc5 are vulnerable to these problems.

As well, a heap overflow was found in the DVD subpicture decoder of xine-lib; this vulnerability is also remotely exploitable. All versions of xine-lib prior to and including 0.5.2 through, and including, 1-rc5 are vulnerable to this problem.

Patches from the xine-lib team have been backported and applied to the program to solve these problems.
