|Summary:||The remote host is missing an update for the 'jasper'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.|
The remote host is missing an update for the 'jasper'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
JasPer is an implementation of Part 1 of the JPEG 2000 image compression
Two heap-based buffer overflow flaws were found in the way JasPer decoded
JPEG 2000 compressed image files. An attacker could create a malicious JPEG
2000 compressed image file that, when opened, would cause applications that
use JasPer (such as Nautilus) to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2011-4516, CVE-2011-4517)
Red Hat would like to thank Jonathan Foote of the CERT Coordination Center
for reporting these issues.
Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct these issues. All applications using the JasPer
libraries (such as Nautilus) must be restarted for the update to take
jasper on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)
Please Install the Updated Packages.
