Description Andrej Nemec 2017-10-10 15:31:30 UTC
An exploitable buffer overflow vulnerability exists in the XCF property handling functionality of SDL_image 2.0.1. A specially crafted xcf file can cause a stack-based buffer overflow resulting in potential code execution. An attacker can provide a specially crafted XCF file to trigger this vulnerability.

Ah, I missed that the second report mentioned SDL, not SDL_image. Thanks for the heads up, will split the bugzilla now.
