Debian DLA-2302-1 : libjpeg-turbo security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 139245


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


Several 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.

For the detailed security status of libjpeg-turbo please refer to its security tracker page at:

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.
