Data-corrupting JPEG bug found in Lightroom 3.4, Camera Raw 6.4  
Thursday, May 19, 2011 | by Rob Galbraith
Adobe is working on a fix for a bug in both Photoshop Lightroom 3.4 and Camera Raw 6.4 that can cause certain JPEGs to become corrupted during metadata update operations.

To be susceptible to this problem, the JPEG must contain "an unusually large block of private camera data," says Tom Hogarty, product manager for Lightroom. So far, Adobe has found only one camera that creates a JPEG that can trigger the bug: the HP Photosmart R607.

Hogarty nevertheless suggests that anyone using the affected software to update the metadata in JPEGs should stop doing so until a fix is available. He indicates that will come in Lightroom 3.4.1 and Camera Raw 6.4.1, which Adobe intends to make available by May 27.

More information is in a Lightroom Journal post.
