New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Updated jasper packages fix security vulnerabilities :

Josh Duart of the Google Security Team discovered heap-based buffer overflow flaws in JasPer, which could lead to denial of service (application crash) or the execution of arbitrary code (CVE-2014-9029).

A double free flaw was found in the way JasPer parsed ICC color profiles in JPEG 2000 image files. A specially crafted file could cause an application using JasPer to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code (CVE-2014-8137).

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way JasPer decoded JPEG 2000 image files. A specially crafted file could cause an application using JasPer to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code (CVE-2014-8138).

An off-by-one flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was found in the way JasPer decoded JPEG 2000 image files. A specially crafted file could cause an application using JasPer to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code (CVE-2014-8157).

An unrestricted stack memory use flaw was found in the way JasPer decoded JPEG 2000 image files. A specially crafted file could cause an application using JasPer to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code (CVE-2014-8158).
