Description

USN-2483-1 fixed vulnerabilities in JasPer. This update provides the corresponding fix for the JasPer library embedded in the Ghostscript package.

Jose Duart discovered that JasPer incorrectly handled ICC color profiles in JPEG-2000 image files. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted JPEG-2000 image file, a remote attacker could cause JasPer to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code with user privileges. (CVE-2014-8137)

Jose Duart discovered that JasPer incorrectly decoded certain malformed JPEG-2000 image files. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted JPEG-2000 image file, a remote attacker could cause JasPer to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code with user privileges. (CVE-2014-8138)

It was discovered that JasPer incorrectly handled certain malformed JPEG-2000 image files. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted JPEG-2000 image file, a remote attacker could cause JasPer to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code with user privileges. (CVE-2014-8157)

It was discovered that JasPer incorrectly handled memory when processing JPEG-2000 image files. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted JPEG-2000 image file, a remote attacker could cause JasPer to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code with user privileges. (CVE-2014-8158).
