Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : jbigkit (MDVSA-2015:101)

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Updated jbigkit packages fix security vulnerability :

Florian Weimer found a stack-based buffer overflow flaw in the libjbig
library (part of jbigkit). A specially crafted image file read by
libjbig could be used to cause a program linked to libjbig to crash
or, potentially, to execute arbitrary code (CVE-2013-6369).

The jbigkit package has been updated to version 2.1, which fixes this
issue, as well as a few other bugs, including the ability of corrupted
input data to force the jbig85 decoder into an end-less loop.
