Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: OpenEXR: Multiple Vulnerabilities (GLSA 201312-07)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: local, remote
Date: December 09, 2013
Bug(s): #277202
ID: 201312-07

Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in OpenEXR, allowing
remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a Denial of Service
condition.


Background

OpenEXR is a high dynamic-range (HDR) image file format developed by
Industrial Light & Magic for use in computer imaging applications.


Affected Packages

Package: media-libs/openexr
Vulnerable: < 1.7.0
Unaffected: >= 1.7.0
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in OpenEXR. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.


Impact

A context-dependent attacker could execute arbitrary code or cause a
Denial of Service condition via unspecified vectors.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All OpenEXR users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/openexr-1.7.0"
   
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since December 08, 2010. It is likely that your system is
already no longer affected by this issue.
