    Package        : jasper
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2011-4516 CVE-2011-4517 
    
    Two buffer overflows were discovered in JasPer, a library for handling 
    JPEG-2000 images, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem will be fixed in
    version 1.900.1-5.1+lenny2. Due to technical limitations of the Debian
    archive software, the oldstable update cannot be released synchronously
    with the stable update.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.900.1-7+squeeze1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your jasper packages.
