Description filip ambroz 2022-01-25 15:03:13 UTC
In Libsixel prior to and including v1.10.3, a NULL pointer dereference in the stb_image.h component of libsixel allows attackers to cause a denial of service (DOS) via a crafted PICT file.

"so this wasn't even supposed to be using STB, except for a bug where the compilie-time config wasn't being checked correctly. it now ought use libpng when present, and i'm thinking we ought yank out this vendored library."

Heh.

libsixel has a stable version so switching to B, and marking as [upstream/ebuild] since there are patches available if the maintainer deems it necessary to import them.
