Scientific Linux Security Update : gstreamer-plugins on SL3.x, SL4.x i386/x86_64

High Nessus Plugin ID 60531


The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


An 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.


Update the affected gstreamer-plugins and / or gstreamer-plugins-devel packages.
