- libvncserver: Heap out-of-bounds write in rfbserver.c in rfbProcessFileTransferReadBuffer() allows for potential code execution (CVE-2018-15127)

- LibVNC before commit 7b1ef0ffc4815cab9a96c7278394152bdc89dc4d contains heap out-of-bound write vulnerability inside structure in VNC client code that can result remote code execution(CVE-2018-20020)

- LibVNC before commit ca2a5ac02fbbadd0a21fabba779c1ea69173d10b contains heap use-after-free vulnerability in server code of file transfer extension that can result remote code execution.(CVE-2018-6307)
