The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
JasPer is an implementation of Part 1 of the JPEG 2000 image
Two heap-based buffer overflow flaws were found in the way JasPer
decoded JPEG 2000 compressed image files. An attacker could create a
malicious JPEG 2000 compressed image file that, when opened, would
cause applications that use JasPer (such as Nautilus) to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2011-4516, CVE-2011-4517)
Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
a backported patch to correct these issues. All applications using the
JasPer libraries (such as Nautilus) must be restarted for the update
to take effect.
