Title: Exiv2: Denial of Service (GLSA 201507-03)
Date: July 07, 2015
A vulnerability in Exiv2 could lead to Denial of Service condition.
Exiv2 is a C++ library and a command line utility to manage image
Vulnerable: < 0.24-r1
Unaffected: >= 0.24-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Exiv2 has a buffer overflow in the RiffVideo::infoTagsHandler function
A remote attacker could possibly cause a Denial of Service condition via
a specially crafted AVI file with IKEY INFO tag.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Exiv2 users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-gfx/exiv2-0.24-r1"
