Package : jasper
Type : multiple issues

Link : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-69
The package jasper before version 2.0.12-1 is vulnerable to multiple

- CVE-2016-8886 (denial of service)
A memory allocation failure was found in jas_malloc triggered by a
crafted file that results in an application crash leading to denial of
- CVE-2016-9591 (arbitrary code execution)
A heap-use-after-free vulnerability has been found in jasper. The
vulnerability exists in code responsible for re-encoding the decoded
input image file to a J2P image. The vulnerability is caused by not
setting related pointers to be null after the pointers are freed (i.e.
missing Setting-Pointer-Null operations after free). The vulnerability
can further cause double-free.
A remote attacker is able to use specially crafted images that, when
processed, lead to arbitrary code execution or application crash.
