CVE ID         : CVE-2014-8137 CVE-2014-8138
Debian Bug     : 773463

Jose Duart of the Google Security Team discovered a double free flaw
(CVE-2014-8137) and a heap-based buffer overflow flaw (CVE-2014-8138)
in JasPer, a library for manipulating JPEG-2000 files. A specially
crafted file could cause an application using JasPer to crash or,
possibly, execute arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.900.1-13+deb7u2.

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.
