Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2015-02-24 08:33:44 UTC
Security researcher Atte Kettunen used the Address Sanitizer tool to discover a crash while drawing images through the Cairo graphics library while using the DrawTarget function. This can result in a segmentation fault due to zero-ing out of memory outside the bounds of the image.
