Description Matthias Weckbecker 2013-08-30 08:50:51 UTC
Specially crafted images could cause Denial of Service issues (looks like CPU
consumption rather than crash).

Do we really need to release a maintenance update for this:
> looks like CPU consumption rather than crash

The patches are rather big. I would definitely not change the CFLAGS and similar stuff which were commented out in the patch.

I could add the
parts, but I won't be able to test this.
It also is not clear in which product this is needed (SLE11 SP3?).
Comment 4 Matthias Weckbecker 2013-09-17 10:34:44 UTC
We always fix all maintained and affected products.
Comment 5 Marcus Meissner 2013-10-04 13:14:28 UTC
no need for immediate action, we have it only on the planned updates list for collective updates later
Comment 6 Marcus Meissner 2013-10-04 13:16:59 UTC
(is this really for Thomas who does libraw1394 , a firewire lirbary?

or more for Petr Gajdos, who does libraw? ;)
Comment 7 Thomas Renninger 2014-12-15 16:53:35 UTC
I am closing this bug now.
It's more than a year old, rated low and probably fixed mainline for quite a while.
