Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA709] DSA-709-1 libexif

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-709-1 libexif

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Sylvain Defresne discovered a buffer overflow in libexif, a library
that parses EXIF files (such as JPEG files with extra tags). This bug
could be exploited to crash the application and maybe to execute
arbitrary code as well.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.5.0-1woody1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.6.9-5.
We recommend that you upgrade your libexif package.
