Package : gdal
CVE ID : CVE-2021-45943

A heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability was discovered in gdal, a
Geospatial Data Abstraction Library, which could result in denial of
service or potentially the execution of arbitrary code, if a specially
crafted file is processed with the PCIDSK driver.

For the stable distribution (bullseye), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.2.2+dfsg-2+deb11u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your gdal packages.

For the detailed security status of gdal please refer to its security
tracker page at:
