Description Ratul Gupta 2013-12-17 09:53:02 UTC
DjVuLibre was found to have a vulnerability, where it incorrectly handled certain memory operations, which could be exploited by an attacker via a specially crafted DjVu (.djv) file, which when executed by the user or an automated system, could lead to crashing of the application (DoS) or possibly execute arbitrary code.

The issue is said to be fixed in DjVuLibre 3.5.25.3.
