CVE-2008-5240 (retired)

Priority
Description
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.
Notes
 mdeslaur> the demux_matroska.c part is fixed by patch in CVE-2008-5236
