 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2008:006
 Package : exiv2
 Date    : January 10, 2008
 Affected: 2007.1, 2008.0
 Problem Description:
 An integer overflow in the Exiv2 library allows context-dependent
 attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted EXIF file that
 triggers a heap-based buffer overflow.
 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
