The initial commit done by upstream at https://github.com/libjpeg-turbo/libjpeg-turbo/commit/2a9e3bd7430cfda1bc812d139e0609c6aca0b884 is incomplete, and should be followed by the commit at: https://github.com/clearlinux-pkgs/libjpeg-turbo/commit/0a5d06c3dd4a64754d7e6ffa081fd9132714f74c


This is flaw is an integer overflow, due to large image sizes i.e. more than one billion pixels. It could lead to subsequent buffer overflows later in the code. However you need a really large image to trigger this.
