Multiple issues were found in the JasPer JPEG-2000 library that could lead to a denial-of-service (application crash), memory leaks and potentially the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed image file is processed.

For Debian 8 Jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 1.900.1-debian1-2.4+deb8u5.

We recommend that you upgrade your jasper packages.
