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.
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.
