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


GStreamer Good Plugins could be made to crash if it opened a specially
crafted file.

Software Description:
- gst-plugins-good1.0: GStreamer plugins
- gst-plugins-good0.10: GStreamer plugins


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
