Relevant part of the stacktrace:
# imginfo -f $FILE
/tmp/portage/media-libs/jasper-1.900.17/work/jasper-1.900.17/src/libjasper/jp2/jp2_dec.c:485:49: runtime error: left shift of negative value -26
The important information form the advisory is that this crash only occurs when jasper is compiles with undefined behaviour sanitizer (ubsan) enabled. That is a development tool aimed to identify possible code bugs related to undefined behaviour. There is no crash as described by this CVE in builds not using ubsan. ubsan findings may indicate a relevant bug, but does not seem to have any other security impact.
