GLSA-201605-03 : libfpx: Denial of Service
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 91376
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201605-03 (libfpx: Denial of Service)
A double free vulnerability has been discovered in the Free_All_Memory function in jpeg/dectile.c.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted FPX image using an application linked against libfpx, possibly resulting in a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll libfpx users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/libfpx-1.3.1_p6' Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying these packages.
