USN-5483-1: Exempi vulnerabilities

16 June 2022

Several security issues were fixed in Exempi.



  • exempi - library to parse XMP metadata


It was discovered that Exempi incorrectly handled certain media files. If a
user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted
file, a remote attacker could cause Exempi to stop responding or 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:

Ubuntu 22.04
Ubuntu 21.10
Ubuntu 20.04
Ubuntu 18.04

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
