Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2012-07-20 17:26:47 UTC
CVE-2012-1571 (
  file before 5.11 and libmagic allow remote attackers to cause a denial of
  service (crash) via a crafted Composite Document File (CDF) file that
  triggers (1) an out-of-bounds read or (2) an invalid pointer dereference.

@base-system, may we proceed to stabilize =sys-apps/file-5.11 ?
