Debian DLA-920-1 : jasper security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 99694


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


CVE-2016-9591 Use-after-free on heap in jas_matrix_destroy The vulnerability exists in code responsible for re-encoding the decoded input image file to a JP2 image. The vulnerability is caused by not setting related pointers to be null after the pointers are freed (i.e.
missing Setting-Pointer-Null operations after free). The vulnerability can further cause double-free.

CVE-2016-10251 Integer overflow in the jpc_pi_nextcprl function in jpc_t2cod.c in JasPer before 1.900.20 allows remote attackers to have unspecified impact via a crafted file, which triggers use of an uninitialized value.

Additional fix for TEMP-CVE from last upload to avoid hassle with SIZE_MAX

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.900.1-13+deb7u6.

We recommend that you upgrade your jasper packages.

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.


Upgrade the affected packages.
