Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2012-03-21 17:19:39 UTC
From secunia security advisory at $URL:

A vulnerability has been reported in OpenJPEG, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise an application using the library.

The vulnerability is caused due to an error when parsing a CMAP record and can be exploited to cause an out-of-bounds write via specially crafted JPEG files.

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is reported in version 1.4. Prior versions may also be affected.

Update to version 1.5.

=media-libs/openjpeg-1.5.0 is in Portage but upstream changed SONAME (again) and the cmake based build system is poorly done so it's (again) unclear if there was
a real API/ABI breakage.

Please test reverse dependencies:

CCing arch's for testing/stabilization.

CVE-2012-1499 (
  The JPEG 2000 codec in OpenJPEG before 1.5 does not properly allocate memory
  during file parsing, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code
  via a crafted file.
