Yves Younan of Cisco Talos discovered an exploitable integer overflow vulnerability when creating a new RGB Surface in SDL 2.0.x before version 2.0.7. A specially crafted file can cause an integer overflow resulting in too little memory being allocated which can lead to a buffer overflow and potential code execution. An attacker can provide a specially crafted image file to trigger this vulnerability (CVE-2017-2888).
