openexr vulnerabilities

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


Several security issues were fixed in OpenEXR.

Software Description:
- openexr: tools for the OpenEXR image format


It was discovered that OpenEXR incorrectly handled certain malformed EXR
image files. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted EXR image file,
a remote attacker could cause a denial of service, or possibly execute
arbitrary code.
