SuSE 10 Security Update : kdegraphics3 (ZYPP Patch Number 2301)

High Nessus Plugin ID 29478


The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.


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 prepapred 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.


Apply ZYPP patch number 2301.
