Impact: Viewing a maliciously crafted image may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution
Description: A stack based buffer overflow exists in the handling of Adobe Digital Negative (DNG) image files. By enticing a user to open a maliciously crafted image file, an attacker may cause an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution. This update addresses the issue through improved validation of DNG image files. Credit to Clint Ruoho of Laconic Security for reporting this issue.
