    Debian Bug     : 775970
    
    An off-by-one flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow
    (CVE-2014-8157), and an unrestricted stack memory use flaw
    (CVE-2014-8158) were found 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+deb7u3.
    
    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.
