Description

By carefully crafting a corrupt TGA image, an attacker can trigger a buffer overflow, integer overflow, or integer underflow that may result in a denial-of-service or arbitrary code execution. This update addresses the issue by performing additional validation of images. Credit to Dejun Meng of Fortinet for reporting this issue.
