Fedora Core 6 : libexif-0.6.15-2.fc6 (2007-614)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

The libexif package contains the EXIF library. Applications use this
library to parse EXIF image files.

An integer overflow flaw was found in the way libexif parses EXIF
image tags. If a victim opens a carefully crafted EXIF image file it
could cause the application linked against libexif to execute
arbitrary code or crash. (CVE-2007-4168)

Users of libexif should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch and are not vulnerable to this issue.

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.
