Synopsis: Moderate: gstreamer-plugins-good security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2009:1123-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2009-1123.html
Issue date: 2009-06-25
CVE Names: CVE-2009-1932
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated gstreamer-plugins-good packages that fix multiple security issues
are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64

3. Description:

GStreamer is a streaming media framework, based on graphs of filters which
operate on media data. GStreamer Good Plug-ins is a collection of
well-supported, good quality GStreamer plug-ins.

Multiple integer overflow flaws, that could lead to a buffer overflow, were
found in the GStreamer Good Plug-ins PNG decoding handler. An attacker
could create a specially-crafted PNG file that would cause an application
using the GStreamer Good Plug-ins library to crash or, potentially, execute
arbitrary code as the user running the application when parsed.
(CVE-2009-1932)

All users of gstreamer-plugins-good are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain a backported patch to correct these issues. After
installing the update, all applications using GStreamer Good Plug-ins (such
as some media playing applications) must be restarted for the changes to
take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
