- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2017-16663.
- More information:
It was discovered that sam2p, a utility to convert raster images and other image formats, was affected by an integer overflow vulnerability with resultant heap-based buffer overflow in input-bmp.ci because width and height multiplications occur unsafely. This may lead to an application crash or unspecified other impact when a maliciously crafted file is processed.
For Debian 7
Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 0.49.1-1+deb7u2.
We recommend that you upgrade your sam2p packages.
