Overview

MetadataExtractor is a lightweight library for reading metadata from image and video files.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Buffer Overflow. Extraction of light source metadata data from an invalid/corrupt image file can lead to an infinite loop recursion within PanasonicRawWbInfo2 descriptor class, resulting in stack consumption.
