Description of problem:
Multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities were reported  in libnemesi with
critical security impact that allow remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on
behalf of user of application that uses libnemesi.
It seems to me that no application currently uses libnemesi. Is that true? In
that case severity of this is not that serious.

Yes, it's true. I wanted libnemesi for alternate RTSP support in mplayer, but
current livna builds don't build against libnemesi yet.
I'll contact the author and get this resolved soon. Thanks for the report.
Ah, I see an update that fixes this is available already.
Hm actually it looks like libnemesi hasn't made it to any release yet (because
netembryo is still in testing), so this affects only rawhide.
