The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
Multiple security vulnerabilities has been identified and fixed in
The jpc_qcx_getcompparms function in jpc/jpc_cs.c for the JasPer
JPEG-2000 library (libjasper) before 1.900 allows remote user-assisted
attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly corrupt
the heap via malformed image files, as originally demonstrated using
imagemagick convert (CVE-2007-2721).
Multiple integer overflows in JasPer 1.900.1 might allow
context-dependent attackers to have an unknown impact via a crafted
image file, related to integer multiplication for memory allocation
The jas_stream_tmpfile function in libjasper/base/jas_stream.c in
JasPer 1.900.1 allows local users to overwrite arbitrary files via a
symlink attack on a tmp.XXXXXXXXXX temporary file (CVE-2008-3521).
Buffer overflow in the jas_stream_printf function in
libjasper/base/jas_stream.c in JasPer 1.900.1 might allow
context-dependent attackers to have an unknown impact via vectors
related to the mif_hdr_put function and use of vsprintf
The updated packages have been patched to prevent this.
Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0
Update the affected packages.
