Several issues have been found in libsdl2, a library for portable low level access to a video framebuffer, audio output, mouse, and keyboard. All issues are related to either buffer overflow, integer overflow or heap-based buffer over-read, resulting in a DoS or remote code execution by using crafted files of different formats.
For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version 2.0.5+dfsg1-2+deb9u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your libsdl2 packages.
