Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2017-02-09 09:15:30 UTC
From ${URL} :

there in an heap overflow in fz_subsample_pixmap.

The bug was discovered by Kamil Frankowicz which said to have tested it 
against the current git head.
The same testcase does not crash the current stable 1.10a, but I can confirm 
(with a round of fuzzing on 1.10a) that stable is affected.

No fix atm.


Reproducer for 1.10a:

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
