Id Description
26317 Gentoo Linux jpeg Library -maxmem DoS

Gentoo has issued an update for jpeg. This fixes a security issue, which potentially can be malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) against applications and services using the jpeg library. The security issue is caused due to the library being compiled without enabling the "--enable-maxmem" feature. This can potentially be exploited to cause a DoS against applications that use the library via a specially crafted JPEG image file that consumes large amount of memory resources.
