CVE-2015-8751 jasper: integer overflow in the jas_matrix_create() function
Last modified: 2017-03-24 09:51:43 EDT
An integer overflow flaw was found in the way the JasPer's library jas_matrix_create() function parsed certain JPEG 2000 image files. A specially crafted file could cause an application using JasPer to crash.
This was originally filed against Fedora as bug 1294039, which includes a PoC for this issue.
