Package : jhead CVE ID : CVE-2016-3822 Debian Bug : 858213

It was discovered that jhead, a tool to manipulate the non-image part of EXIF compliant JPEG files, is prone to an out-of-bounds access vulnerability, which may result in denial of service or, potentially, the execution of arbitrary code if an image with specially crafted EXIF data is processed.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 1:2.97-1+deb8u1.

For the upcoming stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 1:3.00-4.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1:3.00-4.

We recommend that you upgrade your jhead packages.
