Package : freeimage Version : 3.15.4-4.2+deb8u2 CVE ID : CVE-2019-12211 CVE-2019-12213 Debian Bug : 929597

It was found that freeimage, a graphics library, was affected by the following two security issues:

CVE-2019-12211

Heap buffer overflow caused by invalid memcpy in PluginTIFF. This flaw
might be leveraged by remote attackers to trigger denial of service or any
other unspecified impact via crafted TIFF data.

CVE-2019-12213

Stack exhaustion caused by unwanted recursion in PluginTIFF. This flaw
might be leveraged by remote attackers to trigger denial of service via
crafted TIFF data.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version 3.15.4-4.2+deb8u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your freeimage packages.
