Xine Filename Handling Remote Format String Vulnerability

The xine package is susceptible to a remote format-string vulnerability.

This issue arises when the application handles specially crafted filenames. An attacker can exploit this vulnerability by crafting a malicious filename that contains format specifiers and then coercing unsuspecting users to try to execute the affected application with the malicious filename as an argument.

A successful attack may crash the application or lead to arbitrary code execution.

Version 0.99.4 of xine is vulnerable to this issue; other versions may also be affected.
