Libwebp Vulnerability Update:

On last week’s episode of the podcast I covered the fact that Google revised one of their previous vulnerability disclosures from 3 weeks ago about a Heap Buffer overflow vulnerability and published a new CVE – CVE-2023-5217 which listed a library used for media compression called libwebp as a vulnerable component without much explanation for the progression that lead to them disclosing 2 separate CVEs.

When I scripted last week’s episode a handful of other applications were identified as vulnerable due to also using this library. I also stated this one has the potential to become like the Log4Shell vulnerability last year that resulted in many vendors issuing patches due to relying on a popular library and wouldn’t ya know it, that is exactly what has happened.
