Debian DSA-2371-1 : jasper - buffer overflows
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 57511
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionTwo buffer overflows were discovered in JasPer, a library for handling JPEG-2000 images, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
SolutionUpgrade the jasper packages.
For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem will be fixed in version 1.900.1-5.1+lenny2. Due to technical limitations of the Debian archive software, the oldstable update cannot be released synchronously with the stable update.
For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 1.900.1-7+squeeze1.
