Buffer overflow vulnerability in function stbi__extend_receive in stb_image.h
in stb 2.26 via a crafted JPEG file. (CVE-2021-28021)

An issue was discovered in stb stb_image.h 1.33 through 2.27. The HDR loader
parsed truncated end-of-file RLE scanlines as an infinite sequence of
zero-length runs. An attacker could potentially have caused denial of service
in applications using stb_image by submitting crafted HDR files.

An issue was discovered in stb stb_image.h 2.27. The PNM loader incorrectly
interpreted 16-bit PGM files as 8-bit when converting to RGBA, leading to a
buffer overflow when later reinterpreting the result as a 16-bit buffer. An
attacker could potentially have crashed a service using stb_image, or read up
to 1024 bytes of non-consecutive heap data without control over the read
location. (CVE-2021-42716)
