MDKSA-2007:027: xine-ui Vulnerability Scan

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

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2007:027 (xine-ui).

Format string vulnerability in the errors_create_window function in
errors.c in xine-ui allows attackers to execute arbitrary code via
unknown vectors. (CVE-2007-0254)
XINE 0.99.4 allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a
certain M3U file that contains a long #EXTINF line and contains format
string specifiers in an invalid udp:// URI, possibly a variant of
CVE-2007-0017. (CVE-2007-0255)
The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
