Fedora 7 : jasper-1.900.1-2.fc7 (2007-0005)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 62267


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update addresses an issue where the jpc_qcx_getcompparms function in jpc/jpc_cs.c could allow remote user-assisted attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly corrupt the heap via malformed image files.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected jasper, jasper-debuginfo and / or jasper-devel packages.
