Description Laura Pardo 2018-05-11 17:29:43 UTC
A flaw was found in Exiv2 0.26, function Exiv2::Image::byteSwap2 in image.cpp file has a heap-based buffer over-read. This allows attackers to cause a denial of service attack.

Created exiv2 tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1577321]

Comment 4 Pedro YĆ³ssis Silva Barbosa 2018-05-29 18:02:22 UTC
Closing as NOTABUG. 
The POC doesn't reach the byteSwap2 function. The reporter said that the POC was for Ubuntu 16.04, not RHEL.
