Title: Buffer overflow vulnerabilities in OpenCV
Description: Cisco Talos recently discovered two buffer overflow vulnerabilities in the OpenCV libraries. An attacker could potentially exploit these bugs to cause heap corruptions and potentially code execution. Intel Research originally developed OpenCV in 1999, but it is currently maintained by the non-profit organization OpenCV.org. OpenCV is used for numerous applications, including facial recognition technology, robotics, motion tracking and various machine learning programs.
