Debian Security Advisory DSA-1474-1                               Moritz Muehlenhoff

Package        : exiv2
Vulnerability  : integer overflow
Problem type   : local(remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2007-6353

Meder Kydyraliev discovered an integer overflow in the thumbnail
handling of libexif, the EXIF/IPTC metadata manipulation library, which
could result in the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.10-1.5.

The old stable distribution (sarge) doesn't contain exiv2 packages.

We recommend that you upgrade your exiv2 packages.

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.
