CVE-2017-7263

Priority
Description
The bm_readbody_bmp function in bitmap_io.c in Potrace 1.14 allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer over-read and
application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted
BMP image. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for
CVE-2016-8698.
Notes
tyhicksinkscape in xenial and earlier embeds libpotrace (LP: #1156664)
mdeslaurpotrace in inkscape works on bitmaps already loaded, not
arbitrary images. Marking as not-affected for inkscape.
