NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply only to the upstream libjpeg-turbo package and not the libjpeg-turbo package as distributed by Debian:11. See How to fix? for Debian:11 relevant fixed versions and status.

The PPM reader in libjpeg-turbo through 2.0.90 mishandles use of tjLoadImage for loading a 16-bit binary PPM file into a grayscale buffer and loading a 16-bit binary PGM file into an RGB buffer. This is related to a heap-based buffer overflow in the get_word_rgb_row function in rdppm.c.
