A double free vulnerability has been discovered in libfpx that allows remote attackers to cause a Denial of Service.
|Package||media-libs/libfpx on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 1.3.1_p6|
|Unaffected versions||>= 1.3.1_p6|
A library for manipulating FlashPIX images.
A double free vulnerability has been discovered in the Free_All_Memory function in jpeg/dectile.c.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted FPX image using an application linked against libfpx, possibly resulting in a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libfpx users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/libfpx-1.3.1_p6"
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying these packages.
