Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.57499
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-358-1 (xine-lib)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-358-1 (xine-lib)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to xine-lib
announced via advisory USN-358-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.04
Ubuntu 5.10
Ubuntu 6.06 LTS

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

XFOCUS Security Team discovered that the AVI decoder used in xine-lib did not
correctly validate certain headers. By tricking a user into playing an AVI
with malicious headers, an attacker could execute arbitrary code with the
target user's privileges. (CVE-2006-4799)

Multiple integer overflows were discovered in ffmpeg and tools that contain a
copy of ffmpeg (like xine-lib and kino), for several types of video formats.
By tricking a user into running a video player that uses ffmpeg on a stream
with malicious content, an attacker could execute arbitrary code with the
target user's privileges. (CVE-2006-4800)

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 5.04:
libavcodec-dev 3:0.cvs20050121-1ubuntu1.2
libxine1 1.0-1ubuntu3.9
kino 0.75-6ubuntu0.2

Ubuntu 5.10:
libavcodec-dev 3:0.cvs20050918-4ubuntu1.1
libxine1c2 1.0.1-1ubuntu10.5

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
libavcodec-dev 3:0.cvs20050918-5ubuntu1.1
libxine-main1 1.1.1+ubuntu2-7.3

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
