Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: GStreamer Base Plugins: Heap-based buffer overflow (GLSA 202003-33)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: 2020-03-15
Bug(s): #701294
ID: 202003-33

Synopsis

A heap-based buffer overflow in GStreamer Base Plugins might allow
remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.


Background

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.


Affected Packages

Package: media-libs/gst-plugins-base
Vulnerable: < 1.14.5-r1
Unaffected: >= 1.14.5-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

It was discovered that GStreamer Base Plugins did not correctly handle
certain malformed RTSP streams.


Impact

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.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All GStreamer Base Plugins users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
      ">=media-libs/gst-plugins-base-1.14.5-r1"
