Description Laura Pardo 2018-07-30 21:48:13 UTC
A flaw was found in LibRaw. An error within the "parse_minolta()" function (dcraw/dcraw.c) can be exploited to trigger an infinite loop via a specially crafted file. This can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service). 


Comment 5 Stefan Cornelius 2018-08-02 14:10:49 UTC

This issue affects the versions of LibRaw as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.
