    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.
