Publication date: 13 May 2015
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 4
CVE: CVE-2015-3885


Updated libraw packages fix security vulnerability:

The dcraw tool suffers from an integer overflow condition which lead to a
buffer overflow. The vulnerability concerns the 'len' variable, parsed without
validation from opened images, used in the ljpeg_start() function. A
maliciously crafted raw image file can be used to trigger the vulnerability,
causing a Denial of Service condition (CVE-2015-3885).

LibRaw contains a bundled copy of the affected code.  The libraw package has
been patched to fix this issue.
