Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Several vulnerabilities were fixed in libjpeg-turbo, a widely used library for handling JPEG files.

CVE-2018-1152

Denial of service vulnerability caused by a divide by zero when processing a crafted BMP image in TJBench.

CVE-2018-14498

Denial of service (heap-based buffer over-read and application crash) via a crafted 8-bit BMP in which one or more of the color indices is out of range for the number of palette entries.

CVE-2020-13790

Heap-based buffer over-read via a malformed PPM input file.

CVE-2020-14152

jpeg_mem_available() did not honor the max_memory_to_use setting, possibly causing excessive memory consumption.

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version 1:1.5.1-2+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libjpeg-turbo packages.
