I couldn't find a bug report for this, so I am sharing the info here as according to zypper openSUSE distributes live555-devel package:


Comment 1 Marcus Meissner 2018-11-06 08:10:51 UTC
Matthias, I assigned it to you as you did the last update.
Comment 2 Mathias Homann 2018-11-06 08:23:32 UTC
...are you sure you're not confusing me with someone else?
Comment 3 Marcus Meissner 2018-11-06 08:55:21 UTC
from top of live555 changes in factory ... 

Wed Nov  1 12:27:27 UTC 2017 - Mathias.Homann@opensuse.org

- Update to 2017.10.28
- Fixed the handling of the LIVE555 Proxy Server's "-u <username> <password>" command-line option if

If you do not want to do it, do you know someone else ?
Comment 4 Mathias Homann 2018-11-06 09:36:43 UTC
nah, i can do it, i just have found the "official process" to prepare and build updates for official packages to be riddled with random rejections in random places for unexplained reasons.
Comment 5 Mathias Homann 2018-11-06 09:58:33 UTC
submitted an updated package to multimedia:libs/live555
Comment 6 Andreas Stieger 2019-01-15 11:07:32 UTC
Version bump: https://build.opensuse.org/request/show/666187

Will handle the maintenance update myself as the package has no designated community maintainer that can handle this.
Comment 7 Andreas Stieger 2019-01-15 13:01:13 UTC
Factory submission: https://build.opensuse.org/request/show/666197
Note that due to bug 1121995 this library is statically linked into vlc. That means that vlc requires a rebuild against the updated live555 for this fix to become effective.
Comment 8 Andreas Stieger 2019-01-15 13:06:52 UTC
Maintenance submission: https://build.opensuse.org/request/show/666215
Comment 9 Andreas Stieger 2019-01-15 16:12:38 UTC
vlc apparently uses the library for the RTSP client only. The vulnerability affects the server component. Rebuild of vlc will not be issued.
