openSUSE 10 Security Update : kdegraphics3 (kdegraphics3-2299)

High Nessus Plugin ID 27286


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


The KFILE JPEG plugin that is responsible for displaying meta-data of JPEG files was affected by some old common vulnerabilities in EXIF handling.

A JPEG file could be prepared with an EXIF section with endless recursion that would overflow the stack and cause the plugin and so the image browser (konqueror, digikam or other kfile users) to crash.


Update the affected kdegraphics3 package.
