Multiple heap-based buffer overflows in xine-lib 1.1.12, and other
1.1.15 and earlier versions, allow remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code via vectors related to (1) a crafted EBML element
length processed by the parse_block_group function in
demux_matroska.c; (2) a certain combination of sps, w, and h values
processed by the real_parse_audio_specific_data and
demux_real_send_chunk functions in demux_real.c; and (3) an
unspecified combination of three values processed by the open_ra_file
function in demux_realaudio.c. NOTE: vector 2 reportedly exists
because of an incomplete fix in 1.1.15.
