Ubuntu 14.04 LTS / 16.04 LTS : jasper vulnerabilities (USN-3295-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 100294

Synopsis

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

Description

It was discovered that JasPer incorrectly handled certain malformed JPEG-2000 image files. If a user or automated system using JasPer were tricked into opening a specially crafted image, an attacker could exploit this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute code with the privileges of the user invoking the program.

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.
