Bug(s): #559164, #559168, #571256, #599430, #602848
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in JasPer, the worst of
which could could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code.
JasPer is a software-based implementation of the codec specified in the
JPEG-2000 Part-1 standard.
Vulnerable: < 2.0.12
Unaffected: >= 2.0.12
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in JasPer. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted image
file using JasPer possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with
the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All JasPer users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/jasper-2.0.12"
