Debian DSA-3089-1 : jasper - security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 79730


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


Jose Duart of the Google Security Team discovered heap-based buffer overflow flaws in JasPer, a library for manipulating JPEG-2000 files, which could lead to denial of service (application crash) or the execution of arbitrary code.


Upgrade the jasper packages.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 1.900.1-13+deb7u1.

For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie) and the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.
