There is a vulnerability in htmldoc 1.9.16. In image_load_jpeg function
image.cxx when it calls malloc,'img->width' and 'img->height' they are
large enough to cause an integer overflow. So, the malloc function may
return a heap blosmaller than the expected size, and it will cause a
buffer overflow/Address boundary error in the jpeg_read_scanlines
function. (CVE-2022-27114)
