Description

OpenJPEG is an open source library for reading and writing image files inJPEG 2000 format.An input validation flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, wasfound in the way OpenJPEG handled the tile number and size in an image tileheader. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted image filethat, when decoded using an application linked against OpenJPEG, wouldcause the application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code withthe privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2012-3358)OpenJPEG allocated insufficient memory when encoding JPEG 2000 files frominput images that have certain color depths. A remote attacker couldprovide a specially-crafted image file that, when opened in an applicationlinked against OpenJPEG (such as image_to_j2k), would cause the applicationto crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of theuser running the application. (CVE-2009-5030)Users of OpenJPEG should upgrade to these updated packages, which containpatches to correct these issues. All running applications using OpenJPEGmust be restarted for the update to take effect.
