Debian DLA-1402-1 : exiv2 security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 110728

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Several 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.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
