Debian Security Advisory
DLA-3376-1 svgpp -- LTS security update
- Date Reported:
- 02 Apr 2023
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2019-6245, CVE-2019-6247, CVE-2021-44960.
- More information:
Multiple security issues were discovered in svgpp: a C++ library for parsing and rendering Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) files.
The XMLDocument::getRoot function in the renderDocument function handled the XMLDocument object improperly. Specifically, it returned a null pointer prematurely at the second if statement, resulting in a null pointer reference behind the renderDocument function.
and CVE-2019-6247: issues were discovered in Anti-Grain Geometry (AGG) within the function agg::cell_aa::not_equal. Since svgpp is a header-only library, the issue is only transitive in theory. As a result, only a dependency version hardening has been added to the control file.
For Debian 10 buster, these problems have been fixed in version 1.2.3+dfsg1-6+deb10u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your svgpp packages.
