Comment 1 Marian Rehak 2020-07-24 10:51:55 UTC
Created libvncserver tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: epel-7 [bug 1860346]
Affects: fedora-all [bug 1860345]

Comment 2 Todd Cullum 2020-07-27 22:52:51 UTC
libvncserver/rfbregion.c's sraSpanInsertAfter(), sraSpanInsertBefore(), sraSpanRemove() and libvncserver/rfbserver.c's rfbClientIteratorNext(), and rfbReleaseClientIterator() are missing NULL checks for sraSpan * and rfbClientIteratorPtr parameters. If one of them is NULL, this could cause a crash.
