Fedora An integer overflow flaw was found in the way libexif parses EXIF image tags. If a victim opens a carefully crafted EXIF image file it could cause the application linked against libexif to execute arbitrary code or crash. (CVE-2007-4168) Users of libexif should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch and are not vulnerable to this issue.
