Debian DLA-1432-1 : gpac security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 111169


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


Two heap buffer over read conditions were found in gpac.


Due to an error in a while loop condition, the function urn_Read in isomedia/box_code_base.c has a heap-based buffer over-read.


Due to an error in a strlen call, there is a heap-based buffer over-read in the isomedia/box_dump.c function hdlr_dump.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 0.5.0+svn5324~dfsg1-1+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your gpac packages.

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


Upgrade the affected packages.
