libexif is a library for parsing, editing and saving Exif metadata from
images. Exif, the Exchangeable image file format, specifies the
addition of metadata tags to JPEG, TIFF and RIFF files.
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 type="normal">
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.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libexif users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-libs/libexif-0.6.16-r1&quot;</code>
