[slackware-security]  xine-lib (SSA:2006-207-04)

New xine-lib packages are available for Slackware 10.2 and -current to
fix security issues.

More details about these issues may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2005-4048
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-2802

Evidently there is also an issue involving AVI files which has not
been issued a CVE entry.


Here are the details from the Slackware 10.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/xine-lib-1.1.2-i686-1.tgz:
  Upgraded to xine-lib-1.1.2.
  According to xinehq.de's announcement:
   There are three security fixes:
     - CVE-2005-4048: possible buffer overflow in libavcodec (crafted PNGs);
     - CVE-2006-2802: possible buffer overflow in the HTTP plugin;
     - possible buffer overflow via bad indexes in specially-crafted AVI files.
  (* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
