(Exiv2: Integer overflow)
Meder Kydyraliev (Google Security) discovered an integer overflow
vulnerability in the JpegThumbnail::setDataArea() method leading to a
heap-based buffer overflow.
An attacker could entice the user of an application making use of Exiv2
or an application included in Exiv2 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.
There is no known workaround at this time.
