libjpeg-turbo: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code
Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
||GLSA 201209-13 / libjpeg-turbo
||September 26, 2012
||September 26, 2012: 1
All supported architectures
A vulnerability in libjpeg-turbo could result in execution of
arbitrary code or Denial of Service.
libjpeg-turbo accelerates JPEG compression and decompression.
A vulnerability in the get_sos() function in jdmarker.c could cause a
heap-based buffer overflow.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted JPEG
file in an application linked against libjpeg-turbo, possibly resulting
in the remote execution of arbitrary code with the permissions of the
user running the application, or Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libjpeg-turbo users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code Listing 3.1: Resolution
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/libjpeg-turbo-1.2.1"
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
