Red Hat: Updated gstreamer-plugins-base packages fix a security issue

GStreamer is a streaming media framework based on graphs of filters which operate on media data. GStreamer Base Plug-ins is a collection of well-maintained base plug-ins. An integer overflow flaw which caused a heap-based buffer overflow was discovered in the Vorbis comment tags reader. An attacker could create a carefully-crafted Vorbis file that would cause an application using GStreamer to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code if opened by a victim. Updated packages are available from updates.redhat.com.
