URL: https://advisories.mageia.org/MGASA-2020-0019.html
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases: 7
CVE: CVE-2019-12211,
     CVE-2019-12213

The updated packages fix security vulnerabilities:

When FreeImage 3.18.0 reads a tiff file, it will be handed to the Load
function of the PluginTIFF.cpp file, but a memcpy occurs in which the
destination address and the size of the copied data are not considered,
resulting in a heap overflow. (CVE-2019-12211)

When FreeImage 3.18.0 reads a special TIFF file, the TIFFReadDirectory
function in PluginTIFF.cpp always returns 1, leading to stack exhaustion.
(CVE-2019-12213)
