libvncserver is a core rhel pkg, not in epel7 anymore, unsure if that version needs fixing or not. Triaging there.
Seems the 2 linked CVE bugs are documented as WONTFIX (except apparently now bugzilla won't let me change the resolution to that now)
EPEL still provides libvncserver:
$ koji list-tags --build=libvncserver-0.9.9-0.12.el7
