Description Tomas Hoger 2009-03-03 03:12:46 EST
An integer overflow flaw was discovered in the gst_vorbis_tag_add_coverart().  Large COVERART comment tag value can cause memory requirements computation to overflow, resulting in an insufficient memory to be allocated and the allocated buffer overflow when comment tag value is base64-decoded:

gst_vorbis_tag_add_coverart() in gst-libs/gst/tag/gstvorbistag.c:

320   img_data = g_try_malloc0 (base64_len * 3 / 4);
Comment 2 Tomas Hoger 2009-03-03 03:18:28 EST
Note: This problem did not exist in version of gstreamer-plugins-base as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 prior to 5.3.  It was only introduced in the gstreamer-plugins-base rebase in 5.3.
