Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2012-04-21 09:48:18 UTC
From secunia:

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 within the "tcd_free_encode()" function (tcd.c) when decoding tile information from Gray16 TIFF images and can be exploited to corrupt heap memory.

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is reported in version 1.5.0. Other versions may also be affected.

Do not process files from untrusted sources(unpatched).

CVE-2009-5030 (
  The tcd_free_encode function in tcd.c in OpenJPEG 1.3 through 1.5 allows
  remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) and
  possibly execute arbitrary code via crafted tile information in a Gray16
  TIFF image, which causes insufficient memory to be allocated and leads to an
  "invalid free."
