Ubuntu: JasPer vulnerabilities Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Ubuntu It was discovered that JasPer did not correctly handle memory allocation when parsing certain malformed JPEG2000 images. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted image with an application that uses libjasper, an attacker could cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2008-3520) It was discovered that JasPer created temporary files in an insecure way. Local users could exploit a race condition and cause a denial of service in libjasper applications. (CVE-2008-3521) It was discovered that JasPer did not correctly handle certain formatting operations. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted image with an application that uses libjasper, an attacker could cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2008-3522)
===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-742-1             March 19, 2009
jasper vulnerabilities
CVE-2008-3520, CVE-2008-3521, CVE-2008-3522
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 7.10
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Ubuntu 8.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
  libjasper-1.701-1               1.701.0-2ubuntu0.6.06.1

Ubuntu 7.10:
  libjasper1                      1.900.1-3ubuntu0.7.10.1

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
  libjasper1                      1.900.1-3ubuntu0.8.04.1

Ubuntu 8.10:
  libjasper1                      1.900.1-5ubuntu0.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

It was discovered that JasPer did not correctly handle memory allocation
when parsing certain malformed JPEG2000 images. If a user were tricked into
opening a specially crafted image with an application that uses libjasper,
an attacker could cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary
code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2008-3520)

It was discovered that JasPer created temporary files in an insecure way.
Local users could exploit a race condition and cause a denial of service in
libjasper applications.
(CVE-2008-3521)

It was discovered that JasPer did not correctly handle certain formatting
operations. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted image
with an application that uses libjasper, an attacker could cause a denial
of service and possibly execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.
(CVE-2008-3522)
