Some vulnerabilities have been reported in xine-lib, which can potentially be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
The vulnerabilities are caused due to boundary errors in the "DMO_VideoDecoder_Open()" function in src/libw32dll/dmo/DMO_VideoDecoder.c and in the "DS_VideoDecoder_Open()" function in src/libw32dll/DirectShow/DS_VideoDecoder.c. These can be exploited to cause heap based buffer overflows and may allow execution of arbitrary code via a specially crafted media file.
