Synopsis

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

This update for jasper fixes the following security issues :

- Double free in jas_iccattrval_destroy(). Double call to free() allowed attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors. (bsc#909474). (CVE-2014-8137)

- Heap overflow in jas_decode(). This could be used to do an arbitrary write and could result in arbitrary code execution. (bsc#909475). (CVE-2014-8138)

- Off-by-one error in the jpc_dec_process_sot(). Could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted JPEG 2000 image, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow. (bsc#911837). (CVE-2014-8157)

- Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in jpc_qmfb.c.
Could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted JPEG 2000 image. (bsc#911837). (CVE-2014-8158)
