USN-4238-1: SDL_image vulnerabilities

14 January 2020

Several security issues were fixed in SDL_image.



  • sdl-image1.2 - Image loading library for Simple DirectMedia Layer 1.2


It was discovered that SDL_image incorrectly handled certain image files. An
attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a denial of service or other
unspecified impact.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 18.04
Ubuntu 16.04

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
