Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in Xine, which can be
exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error within the
"sdpplin_parse()" function in input/libreal/sdpplin.c. This can be
exploited to overwrite arbitrary memory regions via an overly large
"streamid" SDP parameter included in a malicious RTSP stream.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 126.96.36.199. Other versions may
also be affected.
The vulnerability is present in input/libreal/sdpplin.c at line 255.
desc->stream[stream->stream_id] = stream;
Secunia Research has created a PoC for the vulnerability, which is
available upon request.
We have assigned this vulnerability Secunia advisory SA28694 and CVE
A preliminary disclosure date of 2008-03-19 10am CET has been set, where
the details will be publicly disclosed. However, we are naturally
prepared to push the disclosure date if you need more time to address

FWIW, the same vulnerability apply to VLC.
Does VLC know, have a patch? Does xine have a patch?
xine has a patch, the same patch should apply over VLC. I'm not sure if VLC is informed, I said that to secunia though people though.

That's not even a proper path if the directory was spelled right! :)
=media-libs/xine-lib-1.1.11 will do nicely.
Stable for HPPA.
ppc stable, ready for glsa
Fixed in release snapshot.
request filed, will only be glsa'd after bug 214270 was fixed.
