Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: GStreamer: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 201512-07)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: December 30, 2015
Updated: February 09, 2016
Bug(s): #553742
ID: 201512-07


A buffer overflow in GStreamer could allow remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code or cause Denial of Service.


GStreamer is an open source multimedia framework.

Affected Packages

Package: media-libs/gstreamer
Vulnerable: < 1.4.5
Unaffected: >= 1.4.5
Unaffected: >= 0.10.36-r2 < 0.10.37
Architectures: All supported architectures

Package: media-libs/gst-plugins-bad
Vulnerable: < 0.10.23-r3
Unaffected: >= 0.10.23-r3 < 0.10.24
Architectures: All supported architectures


A buffer overflow vulnerability has been found in the parsing of H.264
formatted video.


A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted H.264
formatted video using an application linked against GStreamer, possibly
resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the
process or a Denial of Service condition.


There is no known workaround at this time.


All GStreamer users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/gstreamer-1.4.5"
