Debian DLA-1402-1 : exiv2 security update
High Nessus Plugin ID 110728
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionSeveral vulnerabilities have been discovered in exiv2, a C++ library and a command line utility to manage image metadata, resulting in denial of service, heap-based buffer over-read/overflow, memory exhaustion, and application crash.
For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 0.24-4.1+deb8u1.
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.
