Debian DLA-2358-1 : openexr security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 140057


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


Multiple security issues were found in the OpenEXR image library, which could result in denial of service and potentially the execution of arbitrary code when processing malformed EXR image files.

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version 2.2.0-11+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your openexr packages.

For the detailed security status of openexr please refer to its security tracker page at:

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.


Upgrade the affected packages.
