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 the oldstable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed
in version 3.17.0+ds1-5+deb9u1.

For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in
version 3.18.0+ds2-1+deb10u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your freeimage packages.
