EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : gstreamer1-plugins-bad-free (EulerOS-SA-2017-1007)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 99853


The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.


According to the versions of the gstreamer1-plugins-bad-free package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was found in GStreamer's VMware VMnc video file format decoding plug-in. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause an application using GStreamer to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2016-9445)

- Multiple flaws were discovered in GStreamer's H.264 and MPEG-TS plug-ins. A remote attacker could use these flaws to cause an application using GStreamer to crash.
(CVE-2016-9809, CVE-2016-9812, CVE-2016-9813)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
