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 were fixed in libjpeg-turbo, a widely used library for handling JPEG files.
Denial of service vulnerability caused by a divide by zero when processing a crafted BMP image in TJBench.
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.
Heap-based buffer over-read via a malformed PPM input file.
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.
