    It was discovered that there was a denial of service vulnerability in
    the libjpeg-turbo CPU-optimised JPEG image library. A heap-based
    buffer over-read could be triggered by a specially-crafted bitmap
    (BMP) file.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this issue has been fixed in libjpeg-turbo
    version 1:1.3.1-12+deb8u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libjpeg-turbo packages.
