<title>libjpeg-turbo: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code</title>
<synopsis>A vulnerability in libjpeg-turbo could result in execution of
arbitrary code or Denial of Service.
<product type="ebuild">libjpeg-turbo</product>

<package name="media-libs/libjpeg-turbo" auto="yes" arch="*">
<unaffected range="ge">1.2.1</unaffected>
<vulnerable range="lt">1.2.1</vulnerable>
<p>libjpeg-turbo accelerates JPEG compression and decompression.</p>
<p>A vulnerability in the get_sos() function in jdmarker.c could cause a
heap-based buffer overflow.
<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted JPEG
file in an application linked against libjpeg-turbo, possibly resulting
in the remote execution of arbitrary code with the permissions of the
user running the application, or Denial of Service.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All libjpeg-turbo users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=media-libs/libjpeg-turbo-1.2.1"
<p>Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
