Package : jhead
CVE ID : CVE-2021-34055 CVE-2022-41751
Debian Bug : 1024272 1022028

Jhead, a tool for manipulating EXIF data embedded in JPEG images, allowed
attackers to execute arbitrary OS commands by placing them in a JPEG filename
and then using the regeneration -rgt50, -autorot or -ce option. In addition a
buffer overflow error in exif.c has been addressed which could lead to a denial
of service (application crash).

For the stable distribution (bullseye), these problems have been fixed in
version 1:3.04-6+deb11u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your jhead packages.
