Ubuntu Security Notice USN-309-1              July 05, 2006
libmms vulnerability
A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 5.10:
  libmms0                        0.1-0ubuntu1.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

Several buffer overflows were found in libmms. By tricking a user into
opening a specially crafted remote multimedia stream with an
application using libmms, a remote attacker could overwrite an
arbitrary memory portion with zeros, thereby crashing the program.

In Ubuntu 5.10, this affects the GStreamer MMS plugin
(gstreamer0.8-mms). Other Ubuntu releases do not support this library.
