High Nessus Plugin ID 60531
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionAn array indexing error was found in the GStreamer's QuickTime media file format decoding plug-in. An attacker could create a carefully-crafted QuickTime media .mov file that would cause an application using GStreamer to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code if played by a victim. (CVE-2009-0397, CVE-2009-0398)
After installing the update, all applications using GStreamer (such as nautilus-media) must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
SolutionUpdate the affected gstreamer-plugins and / or gstreamer-plugins-devel packages.
