GLSA-201512-07 : GStreamer: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 87707
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201512-07 (GStreamer: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
A buffer overflow vulnerability has been found in the parsing of H.264 formatted video.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted H.264 formatted video using an application linked against GStreamer, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll GStreamer users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/gstreamer-1.4.5'
