    Debian Bug     : 772036
    
    Josh Duart of the Google Security Team discovered heap-based buffer
    overflow flaws in JasPer, a library for manipulating JPEG-2000 files,
    which could lead to denial of service (application crash) or the
    execution of arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed
    in version 1.900.1-13+deb7u1.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie) and the unstable
    distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your jasper packages.
