Description

It was discovered that the 4xm demuxer in xine-lib did not correctly handle a large current_track value in a 4xm file, resulting in an integer overflow. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted 4xm movie file, an attacker could crash xine-lib or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-0698)

USN-710-1 provided updated xine-lib packages to fix multiple security vulnerabilities. The security patch to fix CVE-2008-5239 introduced a regression causing some media files to be unplayable. This update corrects the problem. We apologize for the inconvenience.

It was discovered that the input handlers in xine-lib did not correctly handle certain error codes, resulting in out-of-bounds reads and heap- based buffer overflows. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted file, stream, or URL, an attacker could execute arbitrary code as the user invoking the program. (CVE-2008-5239).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
