Several flaws were corrected in Jasper, a JPEG 2000 image library. Heap-based buffer overflows may lead to memory corruption, the exposure of sensitive information or the execution of arbitrary code.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 1.900.1-13+deb7u8.

We recommend that you upgrade your jasper packages.
