Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2009:0352
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2009:0352.

GStreamer is a streaming media framework based on graphs of filters which
operate on media data. GStreamer Base Plug-ins is a collection of
well-maintained base plug-ins.

An integer overflow flaw which caused a heap-based buffer overflow was
discovered in the Vorbis comment tags reader. An attacker could create a
carefully-crafted Vorbis file that would cause an application using
GStreamer to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code if opened by a
victim. (CVE-2009-0586)

All users of gstreamer-plugins-base are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. After
installing this update, all applications using GStreamer (such as Totem or
Rhythmbox) 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
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
