Some vulnerabilities have been reported in xine-lib, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
1) Multiple integer overflows exist within the processing of ID3 tags in src/demuxers/id3.c. These can be exploited to cause heap-based buffer overflows via overly large ID3 frame header size fields.
2) Multiple boundary errors exist within the "demux_real_send_chunk()" function in src/demuxers/demux_real.c. These can potentially be exploited to cause heap-based buffer overflows via specially crafted Real Media files.
3) A boundary error exists within the "open_video_capture_device()" function in src/input/input_v4l.c. This can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted V4L stream.
4) A boundary error exists within the "parse_moov_atom()" function in src/demuxers/demux_qt.c. This can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted Quicktime file.
Successful exploitation of the vulnerabilities may allow execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerabilities are reported in versions prior to 1.1.15.
Solution: Update to version 1.1.15, which fixes vulnerabilities #1-#3.
