GLSA-200907-11 : GStreamer plug-ins: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code

High Nessus Plugin ID 39782


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


The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200907-11 (GStreamer plug-ins: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)

Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in several GStreamer plug-ins:
Tobias Klein reported two heap-based buffer overflows and an array index error in the qtdemux_parse_samples() function in gst-plugins-good when processing a QuickTime media .mov file (CVE-2009-0386, CVE-2009-0387, CVE-2009-0397).
Thomas Hoger of the Red Hat Security Response Team reported an integer overflow that can lead to a heap-based buffer overflow in the gst_vorbis_tag_add_coverart() function in gst-plugins-base when processing COVERART tags (CVE-2009-0586).
Tielei Wang of ICST-ERCIS, Peking University reported multiple integer overflows leading to buffer overflows in gst-plugins-libpng when processing a PNG file (CVE-2009-1932).
Impact :

A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system using a GStreamer plug-in to process a specially crafted file, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code or a Denial of Service.
Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.


All gst-plugins-good users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/gst-plugins-good-0.10.14' All gst-plugins-base users should upgrade to the latest version:
