                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Important: gstreamer-plugins security update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2009:0270-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2009-0270.html

=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated gstreamer-plugins packages that fix one security issue are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

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

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Description:

The gstreamer-plugins package contains plugins used by the GStreamer
streaming-media framework to support a wide variety of media types.

A heap buffer overflow 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.
(CVE-2009-0397)

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 rhythmbox)
must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  Details on how to use
the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-11259

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

481267 - CVE-2009-0397 gstreamer-plugins, gstreamer-plugins-good: heap-based buffer overflow while parsing malformed QuickTime media files via crafted Time-to-sample (stss) atom data
