    A heap buffer overflow vulnerability was discovered in openjpeg2, the
    open-source JPEG 2000 codec. This vulnerability is caused by insufficient
    validation of width and height of image components in color_apply_icc_profile
    (src/bin/common/color.c).  Remote attackers might leverage this vulnerability
    via a crafted JP2 file, leading to denial of service (application crash) or any
    other undefined behavior.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    2.1.0-2+deb8u8.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your openjpeg2 packages.
