Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 7.04 / 7.10 / 8.04 LTS : gst-plugins-good0.10 vulnerability (USN-611-3)

High Nessus Plugin ID 32193


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


USN-611-1 fixed a vulnerability in Speex. This update provides the corresponding update for GStreamer Good Plugins.

It was discovered that Speex did not properly validate its input when processing Speex file headers. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted Speex file, an attacker could create a denial of service in applications linked against Speex or possibly execute arbitrary code as the user invoking the program.

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.


Update the affected packages.
