high Nessus Plugin ID 131643


The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.


According to the versions of the jasper package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- The jpc_floorlog2 function in jpc_math.c in JasPer before 1.900.17 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (assertion failure) via unspecified vectors.(CVE-2016-9398)

- JasPer 2.0.14 allows denial of service via a reachable assertion in the function jpc_firstone in libjasper/jpc/jpc_math.c.(CVE-2018-9055)

- An issue was discovered in JasPer 2.0.14. There is an access violation in the function jas_image_readcmpt in libjasper/base/jas_image.c, leading to a denial of service.(CVE-2018-19539)

- An issue was discovered in JasPer 2.0.14. There is a heap-based buffer overflow of size 1 in the function jas_icctxtdesc_input in libjasper/base/jas_icc.c.(CVE-2018-19540)

- An issue was discovered in JasPer 2.0.14. There is a heap-based buffer over-read of size 8 in the function jas_image_depalettize in libjasper/base/jas_image.c.(CVE-2018-19541)

- An issue was discovered in JasPer 2.0.14. There is a NULL pointer dereference in the function jp2_decode in libjasper/jp2/jp2_dec.c, leading to a denial of service.(CVE-2018-19542)

- There are lots of memory leaks in JasPer 2.0.12, triggered in the function jas_strdup() in base/jas_string.c, that will lead to a remote denial of service attack.(CVE-2017-13748)

- There is a reachable assertion abort in the function calcstepsizes() in jpc/jpc_dec.c in JasPer 2.0.12 that will lead to a remote denial of service attack.(CVE-2017-13751)

- Heap-based buffer overflow in the jpc_dec_decodepkt function in jpc_t2dec.c in JasPer 2.0.10 allows remote attackers to have unspecified impact via a crafted image.(CVE-2017-6852)
