Description Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2019-12-27 14:29:36 UTC
read_colordef in read.c in Xfig fig2dev 3.2.7b has an out-of-bounds write.

Reference:

Comment 1 Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2019-12-27 14:30:28 UTC
Created xfig tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: epel-7 [bug 1786728]
Affects: fedora-all [bug 1786727]

Comment 2 Hans de Goede 2020-01-15 19:48:35 UTC
fig2dev is part of transfig, not xfig.

I've update the Fedora tracking bug accordingly, EPEL does not appear to have transfig, so I believe that the EPEL tracking bug can be closed, but I'm leaving that up to you.

I'm also leaving any necessary updates to this bug (Summary?) up to you.

Thank you for your information.
