Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : libexif (MDKSA-2007:118)

High Nessus Plugin ID 25475


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Integer overflow in the exif_data_load_data_entry function in exif-data.c in libexif before 0.6.14 allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via crafted EXIF data.

Updated packages have been patched to prevent this issue.


Update the affected packages.
