Whilst the CVE description mentions the stress-test binary
(which is only part of the test suite in pixman and itself is not
distributed in Ubuntu) it is not clear if this is a bug in the underlying
library code itself or just in stress-test
mdeslaur
New comment in upstream bug does suggest this issue is in the
test binary
as of 2023-09-22, there is no upstream fix available for this
issue
