Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2013-035

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2013-035 - A heap-based out-of-bounds array read in the exif_entry_get_value function in libexif/exif-entry.c in libexif 0.6.20 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly obtain potentially sensitive information from process memory via an image with crafted EXIF tags. A heap-based out-of-bounds array read in the exif_convert_utf16_to_utf8 function in libexif/exif-entry.c in libexif 0.6.20 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly obtain potentially sensitive information from process memory via an image with crafted EXIF tags. A buffer overflow in the exif_entry_format_value function in libexif/exif-entry.c in libexif 0.6.20 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code via an image with crafted EXIF tags. A heap-based out-of-bounds array read in the exif_data_load_data function in libexif 0.6.20 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly obtain potentially sensitive information from process memory via an image with crafted EXIF tags. A divide-by-zero error in the mnote_olympus_entry_get_value function while formatting EXIF maker note tags in libexif 0.6.20 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via an image with crafted EXIF tags. An off-by-one error in the exif_convert_utf16_to_utf8 function in libexif/exif-entry.c in libexif 0.6.20 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code via an image with crafted EXIF tags. An integer underflow in the exif_entry_get_value function can cause a heap overflow and potentially arbitrary code execution while formatting an EXIF tag, if the function is called with a buffer size parameter equal to zero or one. The updated packages have been upgraded to the 0.6.21 version which is not vulnerable to these issues.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-1255-01
Posted Sep 11, 2012
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-1255-01 - The libexif packages provide an Exchangeable image file format library. Exif allows metadata to be added to and read from certain types of image files. Multiple flaws were found in the way libexif processed Exif tags. An attacker could create a specially-crafted image file that, when opened in an application linked against libexif, could cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.
