Brandon Perry discovered that openexr, a high dynamic-range (HDR) image library, was affected by an integer overflow vulnerability and missing boundary checks that would allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service (application crash) via specially crafted image files.

We recommend that you upgrade your openexr packages.
