GStreamer Good Plug-ins gst_qtp_trak_handler() code execution
|gstreamer-gstqtptrakhandler-code-exec (48181)||High Risk|
GStreamer Good Plug-ins could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by an array indexing error in the gst_qtp_trak_handler() function in qtdemux.c when parsing the stss atom. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted QuickTime media file, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to corrupt memory and possibly execute arbitrary code on the vulnerable system.
Note: Other applications that use GStreamer, such as Songbird, Totem and Amarok may also be affected by this vulnerability.
Upgrade to the latest version of GStreamer (0.10.12 or later), available from the GStreamer GIT Repository. See References.
