16 December 2013

DjVuLibre could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it opened a specially crafted file.



  • djvulibre - DjVu image format library and tools


It was discovered that DjVuLibre incorrectly handled certain memory
operations. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a
specially crafted DjVu file, applications could be made to crash, resulting
in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

After a standard system update you need to restart your session to make
all the necessary changes.
