JasPer 'jp2_dec.c' Remote Heap Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

JasPer is prone to a remote heap-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied input.

Attackers may leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application that uses the affected library. Failed attacks will cause denial-of-service conditions.

JasPer 2.0.12 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
