[slackware-security]  xine-lib (SSA:2005-121-02)

New xine-lib packages are available for Slackware 10.0, 10.1, and -current to
fix security issues.  The xine frontends have also been upgraded.

For more details on the xine-lib security issues, see:
  http://xinehq.de/index.php/security/XSA-2004-8


Here are the details from the Slackware 10.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/xine-lib-1.0.1-i686-1.tgz:  Upgraded to xine-lib-1.0.1.
  This fixes some bugs in the MMS and Real RTSP streaming client code.
  While the odds of this vulnerability being usable to a remote attacker are
  low (but see the xine advisory), if you stream media from sites using these
  protocols (and you think the sites might be "hostile" and will try to hack
  into your xine client), then you might want to upgrade to this new version
  of xine-lib.  Probably the other fixes and enchancements in xine-lib-1.0.1
  are a better rationale to do so, though.
  For more details on the xine-lib security issues, see:
    http://xinehq.de/index.php/security/XSA-2004-8
  (* Security fix *)
