FreeBSD : jasper -- buffer overflow (8ff84335-a7da-11e2-b3f5-003067c2616f)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 66012
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


Fedora reports :

JasPer fails to properly decode marker segments and other sections in malformed JPEG2000 files. Malformed inputs can cause heap buffer overflows which in turn may result in execution of attacker-controlled code.


Update the affected package.
