GStreamer before 1.18.4 might access already-freed memory in error code
paths when demuxing certain malformed Matroska files (SA-2021-0002).

GStreamer before 1.18.4 might cause heap corruption when parsing certain
malformed Matroska files (SA-2021-0003).

GStreamer before 1.18.4 might do an out-of-bounds read when handling
certain RealMedia files or streams (SA-2021-0004).

GStreamer before 1.18.4 might cause stack corruptions with streams that
have more than 64 audio channels (SA-2021-0005).

It might be possible for a malicious third party to trigger a crash in
the application, but possibly also an arbitrary code execution with the
privileges of the target user.
