Description

The bmp_getdata function in libjasper/bmp/bmp_dec.c in JasPer 1.900.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) by calling the imginfo command with a crafted BMP image. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2016-8690.
