-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 [slackware-security] xine-lib (SSA:2007-109-02) New xine-lib packages are available for Slackware 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 11.0, and -current to fix security issues. More details about this issue may be found in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database: Here are the details from the Slackware 11.0 ChangeLog: +--------------------------+ Upgraded to xine-lib-1.1.6. This fixes overflows in xine-lib in some little-used media formats in xine-lib < 1.1.5 and other bugs in xine-lib < 1.1.6. The overflows in xine-lib < 1.1.5 could definitely cause an application using xine-lib to crash, and it is theorized that a malicious media file could be made to run arbitrary code in the context of the user running the application.
