Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3135-2
November 28, 2016

gst-plugins-good0.10, gst-plugins-good1.0 vulnerability

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 16.10
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS


GStreamer could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it opened
a specially crafted file.

Software Description:
- gst-plugins-good1.0: GStreamer plugins
- gst-plugins-good0.10: GStreamer plugins


USN-3135-1 fixed a vulnerability in GStreamer Good Plugins. The original
security fix was incomplete. This update fixes the problem.

Original advisory details:

 Chris Evans discovered that GStreamer Good Plugins did not correctly handle
 malformed FLC movie files. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted
 FLC movie file with a GStreamer application, an attacker could cause a
 denial of service via application crash, or execute arbitrary code with the
 privileges of the user invoking the program.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 16.10:
  gstreamer1.0-plugins-good       1.8.3-1ubuntu1.2

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
  gstreamer1.0-plugins-good       1.8.2-1ubuntu0.3

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
  gstreamer0.10-plugins-good      0.10.31-3+nmu1ubuntu5.2
  gstreamer1.0-plugins-good       1.2.4-1~ubuntu1.3

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
  gstreamer0.10-plugins-good      0.10.31-1ubuntu1.4

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
