    Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3135-1
    November 22, 2016
    
    gst-plugins-good0.10, gst-plugins-good1.0 vulnerability
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 16.10
    - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    GStreamer could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it
    opened a specially crafted file.
    
    Software Description:
    - gst-plugins-good1.0: GStreamer plugins
    - gst-plugins-good0.10: GStreamer plugins
    
    Details:
    
    Chris Evans discovered that GStreamer Good Plugins did not correctly handle
    malformed FLC movie files. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted
    FLC movie file with a GStreamer application, an attacker could cause a
    denial of service via application crash, or execute arbitrary code with the
    privileges of the user invoking the program.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 16.10:
      gstreamer1.0-plugins-good       1.8.3-1ubuntu1.1
    
    Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
      gstreamer1.0-plugins-good       1.8.2-1ubuntu0.2
    
    Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
      gstreamer0.10-plugins-good      0.10.31-3+nmu1ubuntu5.1
      gstreamer1.0-plugins-good       1.2.4-1~ubuntu1.1
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
      gstreamer0.10-plugins-good      0.10.31-1ubuntu1.3
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
