    Ibrahim M. El-Sayed discovered an out-of-bounds heap read vulnerability
    in the function Type_MLU_Read in lcms2, the Little CMS 2 color
    management library, which can be triggered by an image with a specially
    crafted ICC profile and leading to a heap memory leak or
    denial-of-service for applications using the lcms2 library.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.6-3+deb8u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (stretch) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 2.8-4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your lcms2 packages.
