More information:

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.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 1.6.1-6+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your openexr packages.
