Description

It was discovered that JasPer did not correctly handle memory allocation when parsing certain malformed JPEG2000 images. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted image with an application that uses libjasper, an attacker could cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2008-3520)

It was discovered that JasPer created temporary files in an insecure way. Local users could exploit a race condition and cause a denial of service in libjasper applications. (CVE-2008-3521)

It was discovered that JasPer did not correctly handle certain formatting operations. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted image with an application that uses libjasper, an attacker could cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2008-3522).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
