A stack-based buffer overflow in JBIG-KIT might allow remote attackers to cause a Denial of Service.
|Package||media-libs/jbigkit on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 2.1|
|Unaffected versions||>= 2.1|
JBIG-KIT is a software implementation of the JBIG1 data compression standard.
JBIG-KIT contains a stack-based buffer overflow in the jbg_dec_in function in libjbig/jbig.c.
A remote attacker could possibly cause a Denial of Service condition via a specially crafted image file.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All JBIG-KIT users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/jbigkit-2.1"
