Debian DLA-1714-2 : libsdl2 regression update

high Nessus Plugin ID 122829
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

The update of libsdl2 released as DLA 1714-1 led to several regressions, as reported by Avital Ostromich. These regressions are caused by libsdl1.2 patches for CVE-2019-7637, CVE-2019-7635, CVE-2019-7638 and CVE-2019-7636 being applied to libsdl2 without adaptations.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version 2.0.2+dfsg1-6+deb8u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your libsdl2 packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
