Comment 2 Todd Cullum 2020-07-28 00:33:21 UTC
in  libvncserver/rre.c's subrectEncode##bpp() rectangle encoder, there's a potential out-of-bounds read due to && operator order. The patch reverses the order. This flaw could potentially cause undefined behavior or a crash if the width (w) is incorrect.
