Description

By carefully crafting a corrupt JPEG image, an attacker can trigger a heap buffer overflow which may result in arbitrary code execution. This update addresses the issue by performing additional validation of JPEG images. Credit to Varun Uppal of Kanbay, Dennis Rand of CIRT.DK, and Fang Xing of eEye Digital Security (eeye.com) for reporting this issue.
