    Debian Bug     : 457062
    
    Christian Schmid and Meder Kydyraliev (Google Security) discovered a
    number of vulnerabilities in exiftags, a utility for extracting EXIF
    metadata from JPEG images. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
    project identified the following three problems:
    
    CVE-2007-6354
    
        Inadequate EXIF property validation could lead to invalid memory
        accesses if executed on a maliciously crafted image, potentially
        including heap corruption and the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2007-6355
       
        Flawed data validation could lead to integer overflows, causing 
        other invalid memory accesses, also with the potential for memory
        corruption or arbitrary code execution.
    
    CVE-2007-6356
    
        Cyclical EXIF image file directory (IFD) references could cause
        a denial of service (infinite loop).
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.98-1.1+etch1.
    
    The old stable distribution (sarge) cannot be fixed synchronously
    with the Etch version due to a technical limitation in the Debian
    archive management scripts.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.01-0.1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your exiftags package.
