JasPer is an implementation of Part 1 of the JPEG 2000 image compression
An off-by-one flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was found in
the way JasPer decoded JPEG 2000 image files. A specially crafted file
could cause an application using JasPer to crash or, possibly, execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-8157)
