An issue was discovered in libSDL2.a in Simple DirectMedia Layer (SDL) 2.0.9 when used in conjunction with libSDL2_image.a in SDL2_image 2.0.4. There is a NULL pointer dereference in the SDL stdio_read function in file/SDL_rwops.c.

Upstream patch:

this is the same patch as CVE-2019-12221.

Comment 4 Riccardo Schirone 2019-09-20 14:03:29 UTC

This issue did not affect the versions of SDL as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6, 7, and 8 as they did not include SDL2_Image add-on.
