More information:

Several security vulnerabilities have been discovered in SDL2, the Simple DirectMedia Layer library. These vulnerabilities may allow an attacker to cause a denial of service or result in the execution of arbitrary code if malformed images or sound files are processed.

For Debian 10 buster, these problems have been fixed in version 2.0.9+dfsg1-1+deb10u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libsdl2 packages.
