Ubuntu 12.04 LTS / 14.04 LTS / 14.10 : jasper vulnerability (USN-2434-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2014-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2014-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Jose Duart discovered that JasPer incorrectly handled certain
malformed JPEG-2000 image files. If a user were tricked into opening a
specially crafted JPEG-2000 image file, a remote attacker could cause
JasPer to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code with user
privileges.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected libjasper1 package.
