Title: jbig2dec: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201706-24)
Bug(s): #545234, #607188
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in jbig2dec, the worst of
which might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.
jbig2dec is a decoder implementation of the JBIG2 image compression
Vulnerable: < 0.13-r1
Unaffected: >= 0.13-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in jbig2dec. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to process a
specially crafted JBIG2 image file using an application linked against
jbig2dec library, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with
the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All jbig2dec users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/jbig2dec-0.13-r1"
