More information:

Secunia Research has discovered multiple vulnerabilities in libraw, a raw image decoder library, which can be exploited to cause a Denial of Service. The issues contain divisions by zero, out-of-bounds read memory access, heap-based buffer overflows and NULL pointer dereferences.

For Debian 8 Jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 0.16.0-9+deb8u4.

We recommend that you upgrade your libraw packages.
