    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in JasPer, a library for
    manipulating JPEG-2000 files. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
    project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2016-1577
    
        Jacob Baines discovered a double-free flaw in the
        jas_iccattrval_destroy function. A remote attacker could exploit
        this flaw to cause an application using the JasPer library to crash,
        or potentially, to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
        user running the application.
    
    CVE-2016-2089
    
        The Qihoo 360 Codesafe Team discovered a NULL pointer dereference
        flaw within the jas_matrix_clip function. A remote attacker could
        exploit this flaw to cause an application using the JasPer library
        to crash, resulting in a denial-of-service.
    
    CVE-2016-2116
    
        Tyler Hicks discovered a memory leak flaw in the
        jas_iccprof_createfrombuf function. A remote attacker could exploit
        this flaw to cause the JasPer library to consume memory, resulting
        in a denial-of-service.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed
    in version 1.900.1-13+deb7u4.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.900.1-debian1-2.4+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your jasper packages.
