Disclosure Date


Multiple overflows exists in xine-lib. The QT demuxer (src/demuxers/demux_qt.c) fails to properly sanitize input to the parse_moov_atom() function, parse_reference_atom() function, when handling compressed MOV (CMOV_ATOM) files and when allocating STSD_ATOM atoms resulting in an overflow. With a specially crafted file or request, an attacker can cause the execution of arbitrary code or force process termination.


Location: Local / Remote, Context Dependent
Attack Type: Input Manipulation
Impact: Loss of Integrity
Disclosure: Vendor Verified, Vendor Verified, Coordinated Disclosure


Upgrade to version 1.1.15 or higher, as it has been reported to fix the parse_moov_atom() function overflow. The other three vectors were not addresses in 1.1.15. An upgrade is required as there are no known workarounds.
