The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in OpenEXR :
Multiple integer overflows in OpenEXR 1.2.2 and 1.6.1 allow
context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application
crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors that
trigger heap-based buffer overflows, related to (1) the
Imf::PreviewImage::PreviewImage function and (2) compressor
constructors. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third
party information (CVE-2009-1720).
The decompression implementation in the Imf::hufUncompress function in
OpenEXR 1.2.2 and 1.6.1 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a
denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary
code via vectors that trigger a free of an uninitialized pointer
This update provides fixes for these vulnerabilities.
Update the affected packages.
