Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2006-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description :

Several buffer overflows were found in libmms. By tricking a user into
opening a specially crafted remote multimedia stream with an
application using libmms, a remote attacker could overwrite an
arbitrary memory portion with zeros, thereby crashing the program.

In Ubuntu 5.10, this affects the GStreamer MMS plugin
(gstreamer0.8-mms). Other Ubuntu releases do not support this library.

Solution :

Update the affected libmms-dev and / or libmms0 packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.1
