Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : openjpeg (MDVSA-2012:157)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 62423
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA security issue was identified and fixed in openjpeg :
A heap-based buffer overflow was found in the way OpenJPEG, an open source JPEG 2000 codec written in C language, performed parsing of JPEG2000 image files. A remote attacker could provide a specially crafted JPEG 2000 file, which when opened in an application linked against openjpeg would lead to that application crash, or, potentially arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running the application (CVE-2012-3535).
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
