KiCad is a suite of programs for the creation of printed circuit boards.
It includes a schematic editor, a PCB layout tool, support tools and a 3D
viewer to display a finished & fully populated PCB.

Several buffer-overflows were discovered in the Gerber Viewer and excellon
file parser, that could lead to code execution when opening a
maliciously-crafted file.

CVE-2022-23803

    A stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability exists in the Gerber Viewer
    gerber and excellon ReadXYCoord coordinate parsing functionality of KiCad
    EDA.

CVE-2022-23804

    A stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability exists in the Gerber Viewer
    gerber and excellon ReadIJCoord coordinate parsing functionality of KiCad
    EDA.

CVE-2022-23946

    A stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability exists in the Gerber Viewer
    gerber and excellon GCodeNumber parsing functionality of KiCad EDA.

CVE-2022-23947

    A stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability exists in the Gerber Viewer
    gerber and excellon DCodeNumber parsing functionality of KiCad EDA.

For Debian 10 buster, these problems have been fixed in version
5.0.2+dfsg1-1+deb10u1.
These problems were previously dealt with in DLA-2998-1 for Debian 9 stretch,
but the buster update wasn't applied, at the time.

We recommend that you upgrade your kicad packages.
