Debian Bug : 889270 923416

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in advancecomp, a collection
of recompression utilities.

CVE-2018-1056

Joonun Jang discovered that the advzip tool was prone to a
heap-based buffer overflow. This might allow an attacker to cause a
denial-of-service (application crash) or other unspecified impact
via a crafted file.

CVE-2019-9210

The png_compress function in pngex.cc in advpng has an integer
overflow upon encountering an invalid PNG size, which results in
another heap based buffer overflow.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version
1.19-1+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your advancecomp packages.
