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.
