Updated openjpeg2 packages fix security vulnerability

Publication date: 02 Apr 2022
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 8
CVE: CVE-2022-1122


A flaw was found in the opj2_decompress program in openjpeg2 2.4.0 in the
way it handles an input directory with a large number of files. When it
fails to allocate a buffer to store the filenames of the input directory,
it calls free() on an uninitialized pointer, leading to a segmentation
fault and a denial of service. (CVE-2022-1122)
