Debian DLA-1083-1 : openexr security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 102891

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Brandon Perry discovered that openexr, a high dynamic-range (HDR) image library, was affected by an integer overflow vulnerability and missing boundary checks that would allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service (application crash) via specially crafted image files.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.6.1-6+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your openexr 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.
