The remote host has an application installed that is affected by a
heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability.
The version of the IrfanView JLS plugin (Jpeg_LS.dll) library is
earlier than 0.6.4.1. As such, it reportedly is affected by a heap-
based buffer overflow caused by insufficient validation when
processing compressed JLS images. An attacker could exploit this
vulnerability to execute arbitrary code by tricking a user into
opening a specially crafted JLS file.

Upgrade the JLS plugin to version 0.6.4.1 or later.
