openSUSE Security Update: Security update for live555

Announcement ID: openSUSE-SU-2019:0058-1
Rating: moderate
References: #1114779 #1121892

Affected Products:
openSUSE Leap 42.3
openSUSE Leap 15.0
openSUSE Backports SLE-15

An update that fixes two vulnerabilities is now available.


This update fixes two security issues in live555:

– CVE-2018-4013: Remote code execution vulnerability (bsc#1114779)
– CVE-2019-6256: Denial of Service issue with RTSP-over-HTTP tunneling via
x-sessioncookie HTTP headers (boo#1121892)

This library is statically linked into VLC. However VLC is not affected
because it only uses the live555 library to implement the RTSP client.
