Vulnerability  : integer overflow
Problem type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2006-4168
Debian Bug     : 424775

A vulnerability has been discovered in libexif, a library to parse EXIF
files, which allows denial of service and possible execution of arbitary
code via malformed EXIF data.

For the old-stable distribution (sarge), this problem has been fixed
in version 0.6.9-6sarge1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libexif (0.6.9-6sarge1) package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
