    jasper vulnerabilities
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Several security issues were fixed in JasPer.
    
    Software Description:
    - jasper: Library for manipulating JPEG-2000 files
    
    Details:
    
    It was discovered that JasPer incorrectly handled certain malformed
    JPEG-2000 image files. If a user or automated system using JasPer were
    tricked into opening a specially crafted image, an attacker could exploit
    this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute code with the
    privileges of the user invoking the program.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
      libjasper1                      1.900.1-debian1-2.4ubuntu1.1
    
    Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
      libjasper1                      1.900.1-14ubuntu3.4
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
