Title: libexif: Integer overflow vulnerability
Date: June 05, 2007
Bugs: #178081
ID: 200706-01

Synopsis
========

libexif fails to handle Exif (EXchangeable Image File) data inputs,
making it vulnerable to an integer overflow.

Background
==========

libexif is a library for parsing, editing and saving Exif data.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 media-libs/libexif < 0.6.15 >= 0.6.15

Description
===========

Victor Stinner reported an integer overflow in the
exif_data_load_data_entry() function from file exif-data.c while
handling Exif data.

Impact
======

An attacker could entice a user to process a file with specially
crafted Exif extensions with an application making use of libexif,
which will trigger the integer overflow and potentially execute
arbitrary code or crash the application.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All libexif users should upgrade to the latest version. Please note
that users upgrading from "<=media-libs/libexif-0.6.13" should also
run
revdep-rebuild after their upgrade.

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/libexif-0.6.15"
# revdep-rebuild --library=/usr/lib/libexif.so
