EulerOS 2.0 SP3 : jasper (EulerOS-SA-2020-1393)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 135522


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 jp2_colr_destroy function in jp2_cod.c in JasPer before 1.900.13 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) by leveraging incorrect cleanup of JP2 box data on error.
NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2016-8887.(CVE-2016-10250)

- The jp2_colr_destroy function in libjasper/jp2/jp2_cod.c in JasPer before 1.900.10 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference).(CVE-2016-8887)

- The jp2_cdef_destroy function in jp2_cod.c in JasPer before 2.0.13 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) via a crafted image.(CVE-2017-6850)

- The jas_malloc function in libjasper/base/jas_malloc.c in JasPer before 1.900.11 allows remote attackers to have unspecified impact via a crafted file, which triggers a memory allocation failure.(CVE-2016-8886)

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