    Debian Bug     : 681454
    
    Several vulnerabilities were found in libexif, a library used to parse EXIF
    meta-data on camera files.
    
    CVE-2012-2812: A heap-based out-of-bounds array read in the
    exif_entry_get_value function allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
    service or possibly obtain potentially sensitive information from process
    memory via an image with crafted EXIF tags.
    
    CVE-2012-2813: A heap-based out-of-bounds array read in the
    exif_convert_utf16_to_utf8 function allows remote attackers to cause a denial
    of service or possibly obtain potentially sensitive information from process
    memory via an image with crafted EXIF tags. 
    
    CVE-2012-2814: A buffer overflow in the exif_entry_format_value function
    allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly execute
    arbitrary code via an image with crafted EXIF tags.
    
    CVE-2012-2836: A heap-based out-of-bounds array read in the
    exif_data_load_data function allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
    service or possibly obtain potentially sensitive information from process
    memory via an image with crafted EXIF tags.
    
    CVE-2012-2837: A divide-by-zero error in the mnote_olympus_entry_get_value
    function while formatting EXIF maker note tags allows remote attackers to
    cause a denial of service via an image with crafted EXIF tags.
    
    CVE-2012-2840: An off-by-one error in the exif_convert_utf16_to_utf8 function
    allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly execute
    arbitrary code via an image with crafted EXIF tags. 
    
    CVE-2012-2841: An integer underflow in the exif_entry_get_value function can
    cause a heap overflow and potentially arbitrary code execution while
    formatting an EXIF tag, if the function is called with a buffer size
    parameter equal to zero or one.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.6.19-1+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.6.20-3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.6.20-3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libexif packages.
