    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.
