Description

The mnote_olympus_entry_get_value function in olympus/mnote-olympus-entry.c in the EXIF Tag Parsing Library (aka libexif) before 0.6.21 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (divide-by-zero error) via an image with crafted EXIF tags that are not properly handled during the formatting of EXIF maker note tags.

Solution(s)

  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-media-gfx-exif
  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-media-libs-libexif
