A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

– Ubuntu 17.10
– Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
– Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

Exempi could be made to crash or run programs if it opened a specially
crafted file.

Software Description:
– exempi: library to parse XMP metadata

Details:

It was discovered that Exempi incorrectly handled certain media files. If=
a
user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted
file, a remote attacker could cause Exempi to hang or crash, resulting in=
a
denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 17.10:
exempi 2.4.3-1ubuntu1.1
libexempi3 2.4.3-1ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
exempi 2.2.2-2ubuntu0.1
libexempi3 2.2.2-2ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
exempi 2.2.1-1ubuntu1.1
libexempi3 2.2.1-1ubuntu1.1

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.=
