  <synopsis>
    xine-lib is vulnerable to multiple heap-based buffer overflows when
    processing RTSP streams.

  <description>
    <p>
    Luigi Auriemma reported that xine-lib does not properly check
    boundaries when processing SDP attributes of RTSP streams, leading to
    heap-based buffer overflows.
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="normal">
    <p>
    An attacker could entice a user to play specially crafted RTSP video
    streams with a player using xine-lib, potentially resulting in the
    execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the
    player.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>
    There is no known workaround at this time.
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>
    All xine-lib users should upgrade to the latest version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-libs/xine-lib-1.1.9.1&quot;</code>
