Severity: low
Exploitable: local, remote
Date: 2021-07-03
Bug(s): #701850
ID: 202107-02


Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in FreeImage, the worst of
which could result in a Denial of Service condition.


FreeImage is an Open Source library project for developers who would
like to support popular graphics image formats like PNG, BMP, JPEG, TIFF
and others as needed by today’s multimedia applications.

Affected Packages

Package: media-libs/freeimage
Vulnerable: < 3.18.0-r2
Unaffected: >= 3.18.0-r2
Architectures: All supported architectures


Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in FreeImage. Please
review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.


A remote attacker, by enticing a user to process a specially crafted
image file, could possibly cause a Denial of Service condition or other
unspecified impact.


There is no known workaround at this time.


All FreeImage users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/freeimage-3.18.0-r2"
