RHSA-2009:1123 -- gstreamer-plugins-good security update (Moderate)

oval:org.mitre.oval:def:29311

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. 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.
