Mandriva: Updated gstreamer-plugins-good packages fix Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake A vulnerability in the Speex library was found where it did not properly validate input values read from the Speex files headers. An attacker could create a malicious Speex file that would crash an application or potentially allow the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the application calling the Speex library (CVE-2008-1686). The speex plugin in the gstreamer-plugins-good package is similarly affected by this issue. The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
