The package libraw is vulnerable to arbitrary code execution via CVE-2018-10528.


Since a new version has not been released with the fix yet, we should probably consider backporting the patches to our package. However two patches have been issued for master ([2] and [3]) and the 0.19 (unreleased) branch ([4] and [5]) but only one for the 0.18 branch ([6]), so it might be some work to backport the second one if it is relevant to the 0.18 branch.


This task depends upon

Note that the upstream bug report actually covers two issues, CVE-2018-10528 and CVE-2018-10529. The first one can probably lead to remote code execution and is fixed by [2], [5] and [6] depending on the branch, the second one is a DoS or possibly information disclosure and is fixed by [3] and [4].
