A security issue discovered in libvncserver has been mentioned here:
There doesn't appear to be a fix available yet.
Mageia 7 is also affected.
No registered maintainer, so assigning yet again to DavidG since you have been the actual committer of updates for this package.
Re-assign it to pkg-bugs if this is too much. Time to breath at least:

Debian-LTS has issued an advisory for this today (March 18):
Patches available from Debian and upstream
Done for both Cauldron and mga7!
Updated libvncserver packages fix security vulnerability:
In libvncserver, through libvncclient/cursor.c, there is a possibility of a
heap overflow, as reported by Pavel Cheremushkin (CVE-2019-15690).
Updated packages in core/updates_testing:
Patches available from Debian and upstream =>
MGA7-64 Plasma on Lenovo B50
No installation issues.
Installed x11vnc , run this on the laptop defining a password.
Try to connet from desktop using the vncviewer as in bug 25788. I get response from the laptop in the way that the question comes to input the password. Then I get the dreaded box: "Invalid display size".
That has prevented me in the past to ever use teigervncserver successfully, but x11vnc never presented this problem up to now. Running out of options.
