EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : gstreamer-plugins-bad-free (EulerOS-SA-2017-1009)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 99855

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the gstreamer-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)

- A memory corruption flaw was found in GStreamer's Nintendo NSF music 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-2016-9447)

- An out-of-bounds heap read flaw was found in GStreamer's H.264 parser. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause an application using GStreamer to crash. (CVE-2016-9809)

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.

Solution

Update the affected gstreamer-plugins-bad-free packages.
