Hello vapier, maybe some stuff for you when an update is avaible.
Some vulnerabilities have been reported in imlib2, which can be
exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) or
potentially compromise an application using the library.
The vulnerabilities are caused due to unspecified errors within the
processing of JPG, ARGB, PNG, LBM, PNM, TIFF, and TGA images. This
may be exploited to execute arbitrary code by e.g. tricking a user
into opening a specially crafted image file with an application using
Do not open untrusted images with an application using the library.

Ubuntu seems to have a patch for this.
The new packages are linked on http://www.securityfocus.com/archive/1/450551 and when applying the Ubuntu-specific package patch to the original source tree there appears a file debian/patches/99_loader_overflows.patch which supposedly fixes this vulnerability.
Created attachment 101331 [details, diff]
99_loader_overflows.patch for imlib2-1.2.1 from Ubuntu
ive used the actual fix committed upstream and added 1.3.0 with it
looks like a forgotten bug here
1.3.0 has been marked stable on all arches
CVEs talk about <1.2.1 being affected, can someone confirm that <1.3.0 has been affected as well?
looks like this will need a GLSA then

Yeah I think we need a GLSA for this one.
