Description Tomas Hoger 2008-09-08 13:30:10 UTC
Marc Espie and Christian Weisgerber of the OpenBSD project reported that jas_stream_printf() function used by jasper uses vsprintf() internally to print data to a fixed-size buffer.  This can result in a buffer overflow in cases where jas_stream_printf() may be called with untrusted user-supplied data.

OpenBSD patch

Comment 2 Tomas Hoger 2008-09-08 13:53:20 UTC
netpbm contains an embedded copy of the jasper library for use in jpeg2ktopam and pamtojpeg2k converters.  Even though it contains vulnerable version of jas_stream_printf(), that function is not used in netpbm.  Parts of the jasper sources that contain a call of jas_stream_printf() that can possibly result in an overflow, are not embedded in the netpbm source.

Removing netpbm maintainer from the CC.
