Scientific Linux Security Update : openjpeg on SL6.x i386/x86_64

This script is Copyright (C) 2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

OpenJPEG is an open source library for reading and writing image files
in JPEG 2000 format.

It was found that OpenJPEG failed to sanity-check an image header
field before using it. A remote attacker could provide a
specially-crafted image file that could cause an application linked
against OpenJPEG to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2012-3535)

Users of OpenJPEG should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a patch to correct this issue. All running applications using
OpenJPEG must be restarted for the update to take effect.
