Debian DLA-1628-2 : jasper regression update

High Nessus Plugin ID 120961


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


The update of jasper issued as DLA-1628-1 caused a regression due to the fix for CVE-2018-19542, a NULL pointer dereference in the function jp2_decode, which could lead to a denial of service. In some cases not only invalid jp2 files but also valid jp2 files were rejected.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version 1.900.1-debian1-2.4+deb8u6.

We recommend that you upgrade your jasper packages.

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


Upgrade the affected packages.
