Debian DSA-4284-1 : lcms2 - security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 112280


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


Quang Nguyen discovered an integer overflow in the Little CMS 2 colour management library, which could result in denial of service and potentially the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed IT8 calibration file is processed.


Upgrade the lcms2 packages.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 2.8-4+deb9u1.
