    Package        : exiv2
    Vulnerability  : integer overflow
    Problem type   : local(remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2007-6353
    
    Meder Kydyraliev discovered an integer overflow in the thumbnail
    handling of libexif, the EXIF/IPTC metadata manipulation library, which
    could result in the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.10-1.5.
    
    The old stable distribution (sarge) doesn't contain exiv2 packages.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your exiv2 packages.
