  Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:154  http://www.mandriva.com/security/
  Package : xine-ui Date : August 9, 2007 Affected: 2007.1

 Problem Description:  

 Format string vulnerability in the errors_create_window function in  errors.c in xine-ui allows attackers to execute arbitrary code via  unknown vectors. (CVE-2007-0254)  

 XINE 0.99.4 allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial  of service (application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code  via a certain M3U file that contains a long #EXTINF line and contains  format string specifiers in an invalid udp:// URI, possibly a variant  of CVE-2007-0017. (CVE-2007-0255)  

 Updated packages have been patched to prevent these issues.
