JPEG files (CVE-2009-3794).
Jim Cheng of EffectiveUI reported
an unspecified data injection vulnerability (CVE-2009-3796).

Verifier::parseExceptionHandlers() function (CVE-2009-3799).
Will Dormann of CERT reported multiple unspecified Denial of
Service vulnerabilities (CVE-2009-3800).

file, possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code with
the privileges of the user running the application, or a Denial of
Service via unknown vectors.
There is no known workaround at this time.
