Ubuntu 5.10 : libmms vulnerability (USN-309-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2006-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

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

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.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

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

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.1
