Several integer overflows in libjpeg-turbo might allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code.
|Package||media-libs/libjpeg-turbo on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 2.0.3|
|Unaffected versions||>= 2.0.3|
libjpeg-turbo is a MMX, SSE, and SSE2 SIMD accelerated JPEG library.
It was discovered that libjpeg-turbo incorrectly handled certain JPEG images.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted JPEG file in an application linked against libjpeg-turbo, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libjpeg-turbo users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/libjpeg-turbo-2.0.3"
