Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update to the latest upstream release fixes a number of bugs,
among them a possible integer overflow in the
exif_data_load_data_entry function (CVE-2007-2645), which allows
user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or
possibly execute arbitrary code via crafted EXIF data.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
