Description Laura Pardo 2018-03-22 20:31:10 UTC
An issue was discovered in Exempi before 2.4.3. The VPXChunk class in XMPFiles/source/FormatSupport/WEBP_Support.cpp does not ensure nonzero widths and heights, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (assertion failure and application exit) via a crafted .webp file.

Comment 1 Laura Pardo 2018-03-22 20:56:18 UTC
Created exempi tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1559578]

Comment 3 Riccardo Schirone 2018-05-04 09:58:03 UTC
Statement:

This issue did not affect the versions of Exempi as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and 7 as they did not include support for Web/P images.
