Debian Security Advisory DSA-1474-1 security@debian.org

- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : exiv2
Vulnerability : integer overflow
Problem type : local(remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2007-6353

Meder Kydyraliev discovered an integer overflow in the thumbnail
handling of libexif, the EXIF/IPTC metadata manipulation library, which
could result in the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.10-1.5.

The old stable distribution (sarge) doesn't contain exiv2 packages.

We recommend that you upgrade your exiv2 packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.


Debian (stable)
- ---------------

Stable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.
