The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201201-10
(JasPer: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
Two vulnerabilities have been found in JasPer:
The jpc_cox_getcompparms function in libjasper/jpc/jpc_cs.c contains
an error that could overwrite certain callback pointers, possibly
causing a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2011-4516).
The jpc_crg_getparms function in libjasper/jpc/jpc_cs.c uses an
incorrect data type, possibly causing a heap-based buffer overflow
A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to process
specially crafted JPEG-2000 files with an application using JasPer,
possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges
of the application, or a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
