Important

This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as the security errata RHSA-2009:1123
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. (CVE-2009-1932)
All users of gstreamer-plugins-good are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct these issues. After installing the update, all applications using GStreamer Good Plug-ins (such as some media playing applications) must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
