high Nessus Plugin ID 83681
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

jasper was updated to fix two security issues.

These security issues were fixed :

- CVE-2014-8157: Off-by-one error in the jpc_dec_process_sot function in JasPer 1.900.1 and earlier allowed 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 (bnc#911837). CVE-2014-8158: Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in jpc_qmfb.c in JasPer 1.900.1 and earlier allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted JPEG 2000 image (bnc#911837).

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