Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-04-09 16:01:17 UTC
From ${URL} :


Red Hat Product Security Team has reported a vulnerability in JBIG-KIT, which can be exploited by 
malicious people to compromise an application using the library.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in the "jbg_dec_in()" function (jbig.c), which can be 
exploited to cause a buffer overflow.

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is reported in versions prior to 2.1.

Update to version 2.1.

Provided and/or discovered by:
Florian Weimer, Red Hat Product Security Team.
