zgv, xzgv -- heap overflow vulnerability


Gentoo reports:

Andrea Barisani of Gentoo Linux discovered xzgv and zgv allocate insufficient memory when rendering images with more than 3 output components, such as images using the YCCK or CMYK colour space. When xzgv or zgv attempt to render the image, data from the image overruns a heap allocated buffer.

An attacker may be able to construct a malicious image that executes arbitrary code with the permissions of the xzgv or zgv user when attempting to render the image.
