Description Josh Bressers 2009-06-04 14:01:49 EDT
Secunia reported an integer overflow in gstreamer-plugins-good PNG decoding handler. If something uses gstreamer-plugins-good to decode a PNG image, it may be possible to execute arbitrary code as the user.

The Debian bug report is here:
Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2009-06-04 14:04:53 EDT
In the research we've done, neither totem or rhythmbox will use this plugin to parse PNG images.

A PNG image can be displayed using this command:
gst-launch filesrc location=/usr/share/pixmaps/apple-green.png ! decodebin ! ffmpegcolorspace ! freeze ! autovideosink
