    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:

    crafted file.
    
    Software Description:
    - gst-plugins-good1.0: GStreamer plugins
    - gst-plugins-good0.10: GStreamer plugins
    
    Details:
    
    Hanno Böck discovered that GStreamer Good Plugins did not correctly handle
    certain malformed media files. If a user were tricked into opening a
    crafted media file with a GStreamer application, an attacker could cause a
    denial of service via application crash.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 16.10:
      gstreamer1.0-plugins-good       1.8.3-1ubuntu1.3
    
    Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
      gstreamer1.0-plugins-good       1.8.3-1ubuntu0.4
    
    Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
      gstreamer0.10-plugins-good      0.10.31-3+nmu1ubuntu5.3
      gstreamer1.0-plugins-good       1.2.4-1~ubuntu1.4
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
      gstreamer0.10-plugins-good      0.10.31-1ubuntu1.5
