Debian DSA-3138-1 : jasper - security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 80973
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.

Synopsis

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

Description

An off-by-one flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2014-8157 ), and an unrestricted stack memory use flaw (CVE-2014-8158 ) were found in JasPer, a library for manipulating JPEG-2000 files. A specially crafted file could cause an application using JasPer to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code.

Solution

Upgrade the jasper packages.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 1.900.1-13+deb7u3.

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