- More information:
The update of jasper issued as DLA-1628-1 caused a regression due to the fix for CVE-2018-19542, a NULL pointer dereference in the function jp2_decode, which could lead to a denial-of-service. In some cases not only invalid jp2 files but also valid jp2 files were rejected.
For Debian 8
Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 1.900.1-debian1-2.4+deb8u6.
We recommend that you upgrade your jasper packages.
