Title: GStreamer Base Plugins: Heap-based buffer overflow (GLSA 202003-33)
A heap-based buffer overflow in GStreamer Base Plugins might allow
remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.
A well-groomed and well-maintained collection of GStreamer plug-ins and
elements, spanning the range of possible types of elements one would want
to write for GStreamer.
Vulnerable: < 1.14.5-r1
Unaffected: >= 1.14.5-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
It was discovered that GStreamer Base Plugins did not correctly handle
certain malformed RTSP streams.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted RTSP
stream with a GStreamer application, possibly resulting in the execution
of arbitrary code or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All GStreamer Base Plugins users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
