Multiple integer overflows in JasPer 1.900.1 might allow context-dependent attackers to have an unknown impact via a crafted image file, related to integer multiplication for memory allocation (CVE-2008-3520).

Buffer overflow in the jas_stream_printf function in libjasper/base/jas_stream.c in JasPer 1.900.1 might allow context-dependent attackers to have an unknown impact via vectors related to the mif_hdr_put function and use of vsprintf (CVE-2008-3522).

pamperspective in Netpbm before 10.35.48 does not properly calculate a window height, which allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted image file that triggers an out-of-bounds read (CVE-2008-4799).
