    CVE ID         : not yet available
    
    Chris Evans discovered that the GStreamer 0.10 plugin to decode NES
    Sound Format files allowed the execution of arbitrary code. Further
    details can be found in his advisory at
    http://scarybeastsecurity.blogspot.de/2016/11/0day-exploit-compromising-linux-desktop.html
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.10.23-7.4+deb8u1.
    
    The unstable distribution (sid) no longer contains Gstreamer 0.10.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your gst-plugins-bad0.10 packages.
