Debian Security Advisory
DLA-1719-1 libjpeg-turbo -- LTS security update
- Date Reported:
- 18 Mar 2019
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 924678.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2018-14498.
- More information:
It was discovered that there was a denial of service vulnerability in the libjpeg-turbo CPU-optimised JPEG image library. A heap-based buffer over-read could be triggered by a specially-crafted bitmap (BMP) file.
get_8bit_row in rdbmp.c in libjpeg-turbo through 1.5.90 and MozJPEG through 3.3.1 allows attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer over-read and application crash) via a crafted 8-bit BMP in which one or more of the color indices is out of range for the number of palette entries.
For Debian 8
Jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 1:1.3.1-12+deb8u2.
We recommend that you upgrade your libjpeg-turbo packages.
