    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)
