JasPer jpc_crg_getparms() buffer overflow
|jasper-jpccrggetparms-bo (71701)||High Risk|
JasPer is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the jpc_cox_jpc_crg_getparms() function. By persuading a victim to view a specially-crafted image file, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability via a component registration (CRG) marker segment to overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with elevated privileges or cause the application to crash.
Apply the appropriate patch for your system. See References.
