    Synopsis
    ========
    
    Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in LibRaw, the worst of which
    may allow attackers to execute arbitrary code.
    
    Background

    Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in LibRaw. Please review
    the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
    
    Impact
    ======

    There is no known workaround at this time.
    
    Resolution
    ==========
