CRITICAL:
Highly critical

IMPACT:
DoS, System access

WHERE:
>From remote

SOFTWARE:

DESCRIPTION:
Some vulnerabilities have been reported in xine-lib, which can
potentially be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's
system.

The vulnerabilities are caused due to boundary errors in the
"DMO_VideoDecoder_Open()" function in
src/libw32dll/dmo/DMO_VideoDecoder.c and in the
"DS_VideoDecoder_Open()" function in
src/libw32dll/DirectShow/DS_VideoDecoder.c. These can be exploited to
cause heap based buffer overflows and may allow execution of arbitrary
code via a specially crafted media file.

These are related to:
SA24444

SOLUTION:
Do not open media files from untrusted sources.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
