Description Marian Rehak 2021-11-04 12:45:39 UTC
Buffer overflow vulnerability in function convert_colorspace in heif_colorconversion.cc in libheif v1.6.2, allows attackers to cause a denial of service and disclose sensitive information, via a crafted HEIF file.

Affected library appears unused. Given the nature of the library, suspect an unnecessary dependency.
