[SECURITY] Fedora Core 6 Update: libexif-0.6.15-1.fc6

Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 6
Name        : libexif
Version     : 0.6.15
Release     : 1.fc6
Summary     : Library for extracting extra information from image files
Description :
Most digital cameras produce EXIF files, which are JPEG files with
extra tags that contain information about the image. The EXIF library
allows you to parse an EXIF file and read the data from those tags.

Update Information:

This update to the latest upstream release fixes a number of
bugs, among them a possible integer overflow in the
exif_data_load_data_entry function (CVE-2007-2645), which
allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via
crafted EXIF data.
