Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

It was discovered that the exiv2 library fails to parse some crafted tiff images, leading to denial of service via application crash.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 0.23-1+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your exiv2 packages.

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

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
