 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2012:121

 Package : libjpeg-turbo
 Date    : August 1, 2012
 Affected: 2011.
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in libjpeg-turbo:
 
 A Heap-based buffer overflow was found in the way libjpeg-turbo
 decompressed certain corrupt JPEG images in which the component
 count was erroneously set to a large value. An attacker could create
 a specially-crafted JPEG image that, when opened, could cause an
 application using libpng to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary
 code with the privileges of the user running the application
 (CVE-2012-2806).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
