Summary:

LibRaw could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it opened a specially crafted file.

Software Description: - libraw: raw image decoder library

Details:

It was discovered that LibRaw incorrectly handled photo files. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted photo file, a remote attacker could cause applications linked against LibRaw to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.
