Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.56030
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-230-2 (xine-lib)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-230-2 (xine-lib)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to xine-lib
announced via advisory USN-230-2.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)
Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger)

The following packages are affected: libxine1 libxine1c2

USN-230-1 fixed a vulnerability in the ffmpeg library. The Xine
library contains a copy of the ffmpeg code, thus it is vulnerable to
the same flaw.

For reference, this is the original advisory:

Simon Kilvington discovered a buffer overflow in the
avcodec_default_get_buffer() function of the ffmpeg library. By
tricking an user into opening a malicious movie which contains
specially crafted PNG images, this could be exploited to execute
arbitrary code with the user's privileges.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 1-rc5-1ubuntu2.4 (for Ubuntu 4.10), 1.0-1ubuntu3.6 (for Ubuntu
5.04), or 1.0.1-1ubuntu10.2 (for Ubuntu 5.10). In general, a standard
system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes.
