|Summary:||Redhat Security Advisory RHSA-2009:0269|
The remote host is missing updates announced in
The gstreamer-plugins package contains plug-ins used by the GStreamer
streaming-media framework to support a wide variety of media types.
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.
All users of gstreamer-plugins are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. After
installing the update, all applications using GStreamer (such as
nautilus-media) must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
