Tielei Wang discovered that GStreamer Good Plugins did not correctly handle
malformed PNG image files. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted
PNG image file with a GStreamer application, an attacker could cause a
denial of service via application crash, or possibly execute arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user invoking the program.
