Fedora 7 : libexif-0.6.15-2.fc7 (2007-0414)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 27666
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThe libexif package contains the EXIF library. Applications use this library to parse EXIF image files.
An integer overflow flaw was found in the way libexif parses EXIF image tags. If a victim opens a carefully crafted EXIF image file it could cause the application linked against libexif to execute arbitrary code or crash. (CVE-2007-4168)
Users of libexif should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch and are not vulnerable to this issue.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected libexif, libexif-debuginfo and / or libexif-devel packages.
