Guido Landi 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 "demux_nsf_send_chunk()" function in src/demuxers/demux_nsf.c. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via an overly long NSF title.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.1.12. Prior versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to version 1.1.13.
