Synopsis :

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

gstreamer-0_10-plugins-good was updated to fix five security issues.
These security issues were fixed :

- CVE-2016-9635: Invalid FLIC files could have caused and
an out-of-bounds write (bsc#1012103).

- CVE-2016-9634: Invalid FLIC files could have caused and
an out-of-bounds write (bsc#1012102).

- CVE-2016-9810: Invalid files can be used to extraneous
unreferences, leading to invalid memory access and DoS
(bsc#1013663).

flx_decode_chunks, leading to DoS (bsc#1013655).

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