Description Sam James archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2020-03-01 23:40:27 UTC
"OpenJPEG before 2.3.1 has a heap buffer overflow in color_apply_icc_profile in bin/common/color.c."

Affected versions in Portage:
- 1.5.2-r1 (1.x series)

NOTE: A version of 2.x with the fix is already in tree.

This [0] mentions that 1.x is also vulnerable.

Code in 1.5.2:

It looks like a patch could be generated, or indeed the 1.x series could be dropped given it is aging and its last release was 2014. Upstream have not released a fix for 1.x.

Patch for 2.x:
