    It was discovered that exactimage, a fast image processing library,
    does not correctly handle error conditions of the embedded copy of
    dcraw. This could result in a crash or other behaviour in an
    application using the library due to an uninitialized variable being
    passed to longjmp.
    
    This is a different issue than CVE-2013-1438/DSA-2748-1.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.8.1-3+deb6u3.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.8.5-5+deb7u3.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 0.8.9-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your exactimage packages.
