Updated xbmc packages fix CVE-2015-3885

Publication date: 18 May 2015
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 4
CVE: CVE-2015-3885


Updated xbmc package fixes 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).

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