Debian DLA-101-1 : jasper security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 82085

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Josh 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.

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

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
