the following CVE (Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures) ids were
published for xfce4 some time ago.

| libexif 0.6.16 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to cause
| a denial of service (infinite recursion) via an image file with
| crafted EXIF tags, possibly involving the exif_loader_write function
| in exif_loader.c.

| Integer overflow in libexif 0.6.16 and earlier allows
| context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via an image
| with crafted EXIF tags, possibly involving the
| exif_data_load_data_thumbnail function in exif-data.c.

Unfortunately the vulnerabilities described above are not important enough
to get them fixed via regular security update in Debian stable. They do
not warrant a DSA.

However it would be nice if this could get fixed via a regular point update[2].
Please contact the release team for this.

This is an automatically generated mail, in case you are already working on an
upgrade this is of course pointless.
