Multiple integer overflow flaws, that could lead to a buffer overflow,
were found in the GStreamer Good Plug-ins PNG decoding handler. An
attacker could create a specially crafted PNG file that would cause an
application using the GStreamer Good Plug-ins library to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running the
application when parsed. (CVE-2009-1932)
After installing the update, all applications using GStreamer Good
Plug-ins (such as some media playing applications) must be restarted
for the changes to take effect.
