GLSA-201209-13 : libjpeg-turbo: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 62342
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201209-13 (libjpeg-turbo: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
A vulnerability in the get_sos() function in jdmarker.c could cause a heap-based buffer overflow.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted JPEG file in an application linked against libjpeg-turbo, possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running the application, or Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll libjpeg-turbo users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/libjpeg-turbo-1.2.1' Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
