Synopsis :

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

Description :

A vulnerability in the Speex library was found where it did not
properly validate input values read from the Speex files headers. An
attacker could create a malicious Speex file that would crash an
application or potentially allow the execution of arbitrary code with
the privileges of the application calling the Speex library
(CVE-2008-1686).

The speex plugin in the gstreamer-plugins-good package is similarly
affected by this issue.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
