ID CVE-2007-2721
Summary The jpc_qcx_getcompparms function in jpc/jpc_cs.c for the JasPer JPEG-2000 library (libjasper) before 1.900 allows remote user-assisted attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly corrupt the heap via malformed image files, as originally demonstrated using imagemagick convert.

    description It was discovered that Jasper did not correctly handle corrupted JPEG2000 images. By tricking a user into opening a specially crafted JPG, a remote attacker could cause the application using libjasper to crash, resulting in a denial of service. Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    description Multiple security vulnerabilities has been identified and fixed in jasper : The jpc_qcx_getcompparms function in jpc/jpc_cs.c for the JasPer JPEG-2000 library (libjasper) before 1.900 allows remote user-assisted attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly corrupt the heap via malformed image files, as originally demonstrated using imagemagick convert (CVE-2007-2721). Multiple integer overflows in JasPer 1.900.1 might allow context-dependent attackers to have an unknown impact via a crafted image file, related to integer multiplication for memory allocation (CVE-2008-3520). The jas_stream_tmpfile function in libjasper/base/jas_stream.c in JasPer 1.900.1 allows local users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on a tmp.XXXXXXXXXX temporary file (CVE-2008-3521). Buffer overflow in the jas_stream_printf function in libjasper/base/jas_stream.c in JasPer 1.900.1 might allow context-dependent attackers to have an unknown impact via vectors related to the mif_hdr_put function and use of vsprintf (CVE-2008-3522). The updated packages have been patched to prevent this. Update : Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0 customers

    description Updated netpbm packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. The netpbm package contains a library of functions for editing and converting between various graphics file formats, including .pbm (portable bitmaps), .pgm (portable graymaps), .pnm (portable anymaps), .ppm (portable pixmaps), and others. An input validation flaw and multiple integer overflows were discovered in the JasPer library providing support for JPEG-2000 image format and used in the jpeg2ktopam and pamtojpeg2k converters. An attacker could create a carefully-crafted JPEG file which could cause jpeg2ktopam to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code as the user running jpeg2ktopam. (CVE-2007-2721, CVE-2008-3520) All users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages which contain backported patches which resolve these issues.
