Debian DLA-1719-1 : libjpeg-turbo security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 122931

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

It was discovered that there was a denial of service vulnerability in the libjpeg-turbo CPU-optimised JPEG image library. A heap-based buffer over-read could be triggered by a specially crafted bitmap (BMP) file.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', this issue has been fixed in libjpeg-turbo version 1:1.3.1-12+deb8u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your libjpeg-turbo 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.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
