Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : jbigkit (MDVSA-2015:101)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 82354


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Updated jbigkit packages fix security vulnerability :

Florian Weimer found a stack-based buffer overflow flaw in the libjbig library (part of jbigkit). A specially crafted image file read by libjbig could be used to cause a program linked to libjbig to crash or, potentially, to execute arbitrary code (CVE-2013-6369).

The jbigkit package has been updated to version 2.1, which fixes this issue, as well as a few other bugs, including the ability of corrupted input data to force the jbig85 decoder into an end-less loop.


Update the affected jbigkit, lib64jbig-devel and / or lib64jbig1 packages.
