    description Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the EXIF parsing code of the libexif library, which can lead to denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code if a user is tricked into opening a malformed image. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2007-2645 Victor Stinner discovered an integer overflow, which may result in denial of service or potentially the execution of arbitrary code. - CVE-2007-6351 Meder Kydyraliev discovered an infinite loop, which may result in denial of service. - CVE-2007-6352 Victor Stinner discovered an integer overflow, which may result in denial of service or potentially the execution of arbitrary code. This update also fixes two potential NULL pointer deferences.

    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200712-15 (libexif: Multiple vulnerabilities) Meder Kydyraliev (Google Security) discovered an integer overflow vulnerability in the exif_data_load_data_thumbnail() function leading to a memory corruption (CVE-2007-6352) and an infinite recursion in the exif_loader_write() function (CVE-2007-6351). Impact : An attacker could entice the user of an application making use of libexif to load an image file with specially crafted Exif tags, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application or a Denial of Service. Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time.
