Date Reported:
01 Feb 2019
Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 919322.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2019-6245.
More information:

A stack overflow vulnerability was discovered in AGG, the AntiGrain Geometry graphical toolkit, that may lead to code execution if a malformed file is processed. Since AGG only provides a static library, the desmume and exactimage packages were rebuilt against the latest security update.

For Debian 8 Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 2.5+dfsg1-9+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your agg packages.
