Description

Federico L. Bossi Bonin discovered a buffer overflow in the HTTP input module. By tricking an user into opening a malicious remote media location, a remote attacker could exploit this to crash Xine library frontends (like totem-xine, gxine, or xine-ui) and possibly even execute arbitrary code with the user
