Synopsis
========

An out-of-bounds read in libjpeg-turbo might allow remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code.

Background
==========

libjpeg-turbo is a JPEG image codec that uses SIMD instructions (MMX,
SSE2, NEON, AltiVec) to accelerate baseline JPEG compression and
decompression.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 media-libs/libjpeg-turbo
< 1.5.0 >= 1.5.0

Description
===========

The accelerated Huffman decoder was previously invoked if there were
128 bytes in the input buffer. However, it is possible to construct a
JPEG image with Huffman blocks > 430 bytes in length. This release
simply increases the minimum buffer size for the accelerated Huffman
decoder to 512 bytes, which should accommodate any possible input.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could coerce the victim to run a specially crafted
image file resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All libjpeg-turbo users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/libjpeg-turbo-1.5.0"=
