Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 6
CVE: CVE-2018-5815 , CVE-2018-5816

Description

This update provides libraw 0.18.13 fixing atleast the following
security issues:

LibRaw versions prior to 0.18.12 are vulnerable to an integer overflow
in the internal/dcraw_common.cpp:parse_qt() function. An attacker could
exploit this to cause an infinite loop via a specially crafted Apple
QuickTime file (CVE-2018-5815).

LibRaw versions prior to 0.18.12 are vulnerable to an integer overflow
in the internal/dcraw_common.cpp:identify() function. An attacker could
exploit this to cause an divide-by-zero and resultant denial of service
via a specially crafted NOKIARAW file (CVE-2018-5816).

libraw 0.18.13 adds fixes for: 
* possible stack overrun while reading zero-sized strings
* possible integer overflow
