Description David Walser 2014-02-09 20:26:09 CET
As reported in Bug 11149, darktable contains an embedded copy of LibRaw, and darktable prior to version 1.2.3 is vulnerable to the security issues CVE-2013-1438 and CVE-2013-1439.

Mageia 4 shipped with 1.2.3, so it and Cauldron are not vulnerable.

Patched package uploaded for Mageia 3.


Updated darktable package fixes security vulnerabilities:

Darktable before version 1.2.3 contains an embedded copy of LibRaw that
incorrectly handled photo files. If a user was tricked into processing a
specially crafted photo file, darktable could be made to crash, resulting
in a denial of service (CVE-2013-1438, CVE-2013-1439).


Updated packages in core/updates_testing:

from darktable-1.2-1.2.mga3.src.rpm


Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 Samuel Verschelde 2014-02-10 16:45:46 CET
Testing procedure: just import a variety of images (including raw files) and explore the menus.

I haven't found example files to test the vulnerability.
