Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3245-1
March 27, 2017

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

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 Good Plugins could be made to crash if it opened a specially
crafted file.

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


Hanno Böck discovered that GStreamer Good Plugins did not correctly handle
certain malformed media files. If a user were tricked into opening a
crafted media file with a GStreamer application, an attacker could cause a
denial of service via application crash.

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 16.10:
  gstreamer1.0-plugins-good       1.8.3-1ubuntu1.3

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
  gstreamer1.0-plugins-good       1.8.3-1ubuntu0.4

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
  gstreamer0.10-plugins-good      0.10.31-3+nmu1ubuntu5.3

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
  gstreamer0.10-plugins-good      0.10.31-1ubuntu1.5

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