Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux

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

1. Summary:

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

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 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, GStreamer plug-ins of good quality released under the LGPL
license.

Multiple heap buffer overflows and an array indexing error were found in
the GStreamer's QuickTime media file format decoding plugin. 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-2009-0386, CVE-2009-0387, CVE-2009-0397)

All users of gstreamer-plugins-good are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. After
installing the update, all applications using GStreamer (such as totem or
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/):
