New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionSeveral vulnerabilities have been resolved in libjpeg-turbo, Debian's default JPEG implemenation.
The cjpeg utility in libjpeg allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) or execute arbitrary code via a crafted file.
This issue got fixed by the same patch that fixed CVE-2018-11213 and CVE-2018-11214.
libjpeg-turbo has been found vulnerable to a denial of service vulnerability caused by a divide by zero when processing a crafted BMP image. The issue has been resolved by a boundary check.
The alloc_sarray function in jmemmgr.c allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (divide-by-zero error) via a crafted file.
The issue has been addressed by checking the image size when reading a targa file and throwing an error when image width or height is 0.
The get_text_gray_row and get_text_rgb_row functions in rdppm.c both allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (Segmentation fault) via a crafted file.
By checking the range of integer values in PPM text files and adding checks to ensure values are within the specified range, both issues
For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 1:1.3.1-12+deb8u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your libjpeg-turbo packages.
