    The update of jasper issued as DLA-1628-1 caused a regression due to the fix for CVE-2018-19542, a NULL pointer dereference in the function jp2_decode, which could lead to a denial-of-service. In some cases not only invalid jp2 files but also valid jp2 files were rejected.
    
    Package        : jasper
    Version        : 1.900.1-debian1-2.4+deb8u6

    jp2_decode, which could lead to a denial-of-service. In some cases not
    only invalid jp2 files but also valid jp2 files were rejected.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    1.900.1-debian1-2.4+deb8u6.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your jasper packages.
