An issue was discovered in libgig through 20200507. A heap-buffer-overflow exists in the function RIFF::List::GetSubList located in RIFF.cpp. It allows an attacker to cause code Execution.

URL doesn't seem to be the real issue tracker for libgig, and doesn't
seem like this is where development happens anyway, so not sure if
this was effectively reported upstream?
