Scientific Linux Security Update : gstreamer-plugins-good on SL5.x i386/x86_64

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 60602


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


Multiple integer overflow flaws, that could lead to a buffer overflow, were found in the GStreamer Good Plug-ins PNG decoding handler. An attacker could create a specially crafted PNG file that would cause an application using the GStreamer Good Plug-ins library to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running the application when parsed. (CVE-2009-1932)

After installing the update, all applications using GStreamer Good Plug-ins (such as some media playing applications) must be restarted for the changes to take effect.


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