Debian DSA-3785-1 : jasper - security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 97090
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

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.

Solution

Upgrade the jasper packages.

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