Several security issues were fixed in SDL.

Software Description: - libsdl1.2: Simple DirectMedia Layer


It was discovered that SDL incorrectly handled certain images. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted image file, a remote attacker could use this issue to cause SDL to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.
