Description David Lawrence 2005-03-30 23:32:15 UTC
Buffer overflow in the EXIF library (libexif) 0.6.9 does not properly validate
the structure of the EXIF tags, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial
of service (application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via an image
with a crafted EXIF tag.
