This script is Copyright (C) 2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Multiple heap buffer overflows and an array indexing error were found
in the GStreamer's QuickTime media file format decoding plugin. An
attacker could create a carefully-crafted QuickTime media .mov file
that would cause an application using GStreamer to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code if played by a victim.
(CVE-2009-0386, CVE-2009-0387, CVE-2009-0397)

After installing the update, all applications using GStreamer (such as
totem or rhythmbox) must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
