Description
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

There is a stack based overflow in the libmms library included with
xine-lib which can be triggered by malicious use of the send_command,
string_utf16, get_data and get_media_packet functions.

Impact
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

A remote attacker could design a malicious media file that would
trigger the overflow, potentially resulting in the execution of
arbitrary code.

Workaround
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

All xine-lib users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
">=3Dmedia-libs/xine-lib-1.1.2-r2"=
