    an out-of-bounds write vulnerability due to an integer overflow was reported in
    libexif, a library to parse exif files. This flaw might be leveraged by remote
    attackers to cause denial of service, or potentially execute arbitrary code via
    crafted image files.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    0.6.21-2+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libexif packages.
