MGASA-2012-0203

Date: August 6th, 2012
Affected releases: 1, 2


Description:
Updated libjpeg packages fix security vulnerability:

A Heap-based buffer overflow was found in the way libjpeg-turbo
decompressed certain corrupt JPEG images in which the component count
was erroneously set to a large value. An attacker could create a
specially-crafted JPEG image that, when opened, could cause an
application using libjpeg to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary
code with the privileges of the user running the application
(CVE-2012-2806).


Updated Packages:
Mageia 1:
lib(64)jpeg62-6b-49.1.mga1
lib(64)jpeg62-devel-6b-49.1.mga1
