    Package        : openjpeg
    
    A regression in the decoding of chroma-subsampled images in OpenJPEG
    was introduced by one of the patches for CVE-2013-6045. This update
    fixes the regression.
    
    For reference, the original text of DSA-2808-1 is reproduced below:
    
    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in OpenJPEG, a JPEG 2000
    image library, that may lead to denial of service (CVE-2013-1447) via
    application crash or high memory consumption, possible code execution
    through heap buffer overflows (CVE-2013-6045), information disclosure
    (CVE-2013-6052), or yet another heap buffer overflow that only appears
    to affect OpenJPEG 1.3 (CVE-2013-6054).
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.3+dfsg-4+squeeze3.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.3+dfsg-4.8.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your openjpeg packages.
