Virtuozzo 7 : gstreamer-plugins-bad-free / etc (VZLSA-2017-0018)

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Virtuozzo host is missing a security update.

Description :

An update for gstreamer-plugins-bad-free is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security
impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each
vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

GStreamer is a streaming media framework based on graphs of filters
which operate on media data. The gstreamer-plugins-bad-free package
contains a collection of plug-ins for GStreamer.

Security Fix(es) :

* An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow,
was found in GStreamer's VMware VMnc video file format decoding
plug-in. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause an application
using GStreamer to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with
the privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2016-9445)

* A memory corruption flaw was found in GStreamer's Nintendo NSF music
file format decoding plug-in. A remote attacker could use this flaw to
cause an application using GStreamer to crash or, potentially, execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the
application. (CVE-2016-9447)

* An out-of-bounds heap read flaw was found in GStreamer's H.264
parser. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause an application
using GStreamer to crash. (CVE-2016-9809)

Note: This update removes the vulnerable Nintendo NSF plug-in.

Note that Tenable Network Security has attempted to extract the
preceding description block directly from the corresponding Red Hat
security advisory. Virtuozzo provides no description for VZLSA
advisories. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format
it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
