Description

- The mpatch_apply function in mpatch.c in Mercurial before 4.6.1 incorrectly proceeds in cases where the fragment start is past the end of the original data, aka OVE-20180430-0004. (CVE-2018-13346)

- mpatch.c in Mercurial before 4.6.1 mishandles integer addition and subtraction, aka OVE-20180430-0002.
(CVE-2018-13347)
