More information:

Several issues have been found in cimg, a powerful image processing library.

  • CVE-2019-1010174

    is related to a missing string sanitization on URLs, which might result in a command injection when loading a special crafted image.

    The other CVEs are about heap-based buffer over-reads or double frees when loading an image.

    For Debian 8 Jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 1.5.9+dfsg-1+deb8u1.

    We recommend that you upgrade your cimg packages.
