Description Josh Bressers 2005-03-07 15:43:03 EST
Ubuntu alerted vendor-sec to a buffer overflow reported to their BTS regarding
processing exif headers with libexif.


The sourceforge bug suggests this is only a DoS.
Comment 1 Marco Pesenti Gritti 2005-03-09 06:36:19 EST
I released FC2/FC3 updates and I filed an errata request. Do I need to file a QA
request? I'm not sure what ask to test since there are not testcases of the
issue available...

This is a crash only of a user application, therefore this is low
