An update for openjpeg is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

OpenJPEG is an open source library for reading and writing image files in JPEG2000 format.

Security Fix(es):

* Multiple integer overflow flaws, leading to heap-based buffer overflows, were found in OpenJPEG. A specially crafted JPEG2000 image could cause an application using OpenJPEG to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-5139, CVE-2016-5158, CVE-2016-5159, CVE-2016-7163)

* An out-of-bounds read vulnerability was found in OpenJPEG, in the j2k_to_image tool. Converting a specially crafted JPEG2000 file to another format could cause the application to crash or, potentially, disclose some data from the heap. (CVE-2016-9573)

* A heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability was found in OpenJPEG. A specially crafted JPEG2000 image, when read by an application using OpenJPEG, could cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-9675)

Red Hat would like to thank Liu Bingchang (IIE) for reporting CVE-2016-9573. The CVE-2016-9675 issue was discovered by Doran Moppert (Red Hat Product Security).
