Title: libfpx: Denial of Service (GLSA 201605-03)
Date: May 30, 2016
A double free vulnerability has been discovered in libfpx that
allows remote attackers to cause a Denial of Service.
A library for manipulating FlashPIX images.
Vulnerable: < 1.3.1_p6
Unaffected: >= 1.3.1_p6
Architectures: All supported architectures
A double free vulnerability has been discovered in the Free_All_Memory
function in jpeg/dectile.c.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted FPX
image using an application linked against libfpx, possibly resulting in a
Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libfpx users should upgrade to the latest version:
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/libfpx-1.3.1_p6"
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying these packages.
