Description Josh Bressers 2005-03-07 15:49:13 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #150503 +++

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 Josh Bressers 2005-03-07 15:51:37 EST
This issue should also affect FC2
Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2005-03-14 09:48:35 EST
Marco built and pushed libexif-0.5.12-3.1 with the fix.
