An integer overflow flaw was found in the way the 2D component handled
certain sample model instances. A specially crafted sample model
instance could cause Java Virtual Machine memory corruption and,
possibly, lead to arbitrary code execution with virtual machine
It was discovered that the 2D component did not properly reject
certain malformed images. Specially crafted raster parameters could
