CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C

Technical Details:
The following Linux Distribution Package is affected: libxine CVE-2009-0698 Integer overflow in the 4xm demuxer (demuxers/demux_4xm.c) in xine-lib 1.1.16.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a 4X movie file with a large current_track value, a similar issue to CVE-2009-0385. CVE-2008-5234 Multiple heap-based buffer overflows in xine-lib 1.1.12, and other versions before 1.1.15, allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via vectors related to (1) a crafted metadata atom size processed by the parse_moov_atom function in demux_qt.c and (2) frame reading in the id3v23_interp_frame function in id3.c. NOTE: as of 20081122, it is possible that vector 1 has not been fixed in 1.1.15. CVE-2008-5240 xine-lib 1.1.12, and other 1.1.15 and earlier versions, relies on an untrusted input value to determine the memory allocation and does not check the result for (1) the MATROSKA_ID_TR_CODECPRIVATE track entry element processed by demux_matroska.c and (2) PROP_TAG, (3) MDPR_TAG, and (4) CONT_TAG chunks processed by the real_parse_headers function in demux_real.c which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted value.

Recommendations:
Update your system with the appropriate patches or software upgrades. http://trapkit.de/advisories/TKADV2009-004.txt http://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.php?release_id=660071 http://www.vuxml.org/freebsd/51d1d428-42f0-11de-ad22-000e35248ad7.html

Summary:

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
