CVE ID         : CVE-2018-10958 CVE-2018-10999 CVE-2018-16336

A vulnerability has been discovered in exiv2 (CVE-2018-16336), a C++
library and a command line utility to manage image metadata, resulting
in remote denial of service (heap-based buffer over-read/overflow) via
a crafted image file.

Additionally, this update includes a minor change to the patch for the
CVE-2018-10958/CVE-2018-10999 vulnerability first addressed in DLA

We recommend that you upgrade your exiv2 packages.
