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


Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in the JasPer library for processing JPEG-2000 images, which may result in denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed image is processed.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 1.900.1-debian1-2.4+deb8u2.
