Source: exiv2
Version: 0.26-1
Severity: grave
Tags: security upstream


The following vulnerability was published for exiv2, only affecting
the experimental version. The severity as such is not warranted but is
to make sure the 0.26 affecting issues do not enter an upcoming stable
release. If you disagree on that approach I would not object to
downgrade to important.

| There is an infinite loop in the Exiv2::Image::printIFDStructure
| function of image.cpp in Exiv2 0.27-RC1. A crafted input will lead to a
| remote denial of service attack.

If you fix the vulnerability please also make sure to include the
CVE (Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures) id in your changelog entry.
