MDKSA-2005:011: xine-lib Vulnerability Scan


Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the xine-lib package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:011 (xine-lib).



iDefense discovered that the PNA_TAG handling code in pnm_get_chunk() does not
check if the input size is larger than the buffer size (CVE-2004-1187). As
well, they discovered that in this same function, a negative value could be
given to an unsigned variable that specifies the read length of input data
(CVE-2004-1188).

Ariel Berkman discovered that xine-lib reads specific input data into an array
without checking the input size making it vulnerable to a buffer overflow
problem (CVE-2004-1300).

The updated packages have been patched to prevent these problems.
