Description Tomas Hoger 2008-03-19 15:49:07 UTC
Alin Rad Pop of Secunia Research discovered following flaw affecting xine-lib:

SA28694:

Description:
Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in xine-lib, which can be
exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error within the
"sdpplin_parse()" function in input/libreal/sdpplin.c. This can be exploited to
overwrite arbitrary memory regions via an overly large "streamid" SDP parameter
included in a malicious RTSP stream.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.1.10.1. Other versions may also be
affected.

Solution:
Do not open untrusted RTSP streams.
A patch or updated version should be available shortly.

According to Gentoo bug, this issue also affects VLC.

Issue should be addressed in next upstream version 1.1.11 (not yet available).
Patch is aviable in the xine bugzilla.
