Summary : Library for reading RAW files obtained from digital photo cameras
Description :
LibRaw is a library for reading RAW files obtained from digital photo
cameras (CRW/CR2, NEF, RAF, DNG, and others).

LibRaw is based on the source codes of the dcraw utility, where part of
drawbacks have already been eliminated and part will be fixed in future.

Update Information:

Raphael Geissert reported two denial of service flaws in LibRaw [1]:


Specially crafted photo files may trigger a division by zero, an
infinite loop, or a null pointer dereference in libraw leading to
denial of service in applications using the library.
These vulnerabilities appear to originate in dcraw and as such any
program or library based on it is affected. To name a few confirmed
applications: dcraw, ufraw. Other affected software: shotwell,
darktable, and libkdcraw (Qt-style interface to libraw, using embedded
copy) which is used by digikam.

Google Picasa apparently uses dcraw/ufraw so it might be affected.
dcraw's homepage has a list of applications that possibly still use

Affected versions of libraw: confirmed: 0.8-0.15.3; but it is likely
that all versions are affected.

Fixed in: libraw 0.15.4


Specially crafted photo files may trigger a series of conditions in
which a null pointer is dereferenced leading to denial of service in
applications using the library. These three vulnerabilities are
in/related to the 'faster LJPEG decoder', which upstream states was
introduced in LibRaw 0.13 and support for which is going to be dropped
in 0.16.

Affected versions of libraw: 0.13.x-0.15.x
