    It was discovered that there was an integer overflow vulnerability
    in exiv2, a tool to manipulate images containing (eg.) EXIF metadata.
    
    This could have resulted in a denial of service via a specially-
    crafted file. 
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this issue has been fixed in exiv2 version
    0.24-4.1+deb8u4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your exiv2 packages.
