Subject: CVE Request : Use-after-free in gifcolor


Multiples double-free / use-after-free (with the same root origin) were
reported in giflib ( on
February 18.
It affects the utility gifcolor. More information here:
The fixed version should be release soon.

Since the vuln is medium/severe (double-free/use-after-free), but the
attack surface is low (it affects only gifcolor, no the lib itself),
could it be possible to receive a CVE number for it ?

It was found with the help of the static analyzer GUEB.

Thanks !
Best regards,
Josselin Feist
