Description Aleksandr Wagner (Kivak) 2017-07-12 07:05:56 UTC
There is an invalid free in Image::printIFDStructure that leads to a Segmentation fault in Exiv2 0.26. A crafted input will lead to a remote denial of service attack.

Red Hat is not upstream for this.
Comment 2 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2018-02-16 23:16:10 UTC
Our snapshot of 0.26 is not vulnerable to this particular bug.
